Art Friday: Kiyoshi Saitō

Art Friday: Kiyoshi Saitō 

April 27, 1907 – November 14, 1997, born in Aizubange, Fukushima, Japan

Painter and print maker

I know nothing about Japanese art having never studied it. Therefore I really can't provide  any intelligent comment of these prints by Kiyoshi Saito, except that I really like them. I am particularly drawn to their simplicity, of colour, line and topic. What do you think?

PS I do love the prints of cats that he does. Any person who likes cats is a friend of mine!!

  1. Hmmm... This is not really the kind of art that appeals to me... I'm sure you already know that - I prefer the more realistic artwork... To me, these are a bit drab, too - I like a more liberal use of colour! We're all different! :P

    1. Something different - just stretching your art appreciation !!!

  2. This isn't really my style, but I enjoy your Art Fridays.

    By the way, I just nominated you for the Liebster Award.
