ARTIST INFO
Katsutoshi Yuasa (Japanese, b.1978) is a Tokyo-born artist, best-known for his large, detailed woodcuts based on photographs.

Since graduating, Yuasa has had residencies in Israel, France, Netherlands, and the United States. He describes his work as a fusion between traditional Japanese printmaking and contemporary image capture, translating pixels into hand-carved lines on wooden blocks.Yuasa has held exhibitions at a number of international institutions, including, We are all a bit Different at the Chambers Gallery in London, England (2004); Woodcuts at the Cobra Museum of Modern Art in Amstelveen, Netherlands (2008); and Miraculous at the ISE Cultural Foundation in New York, NY (2013).
