- Kyo no Kaze (Kyoto Breeze) -

Teruhide Kato


The refreshing woodblock print "Kyo no Kaze" (Kyoto Breeze) is by Teruhide Kato. A fresh early summer image of Kyoto. Published by Unsodo. Hand-signed by the artist. We scarcely see his hand-signed print nowadays. 

Teruhide Kato had studied at Kyoto Art College. He was a famous kimono fashion designer. When he was 50 years old, he decided to follow his real passion and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist. Success remained with the artist. After a gallery exhibition in New York and a book publication of his works titled "Kyoto Romance", he is as famous as a woodblock artist as he used to be as a kimono designer. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2015.
