I call this set of images The Zodiac but Maki formally called this Animal Song + the animal name in kanji. The actual prints here are Animal Song. Red Lantern Gallery in Kyoto distributed them. 1968. In 1968 Haku Maki was commissioned by Red Lantern Gallery in Kyoto to produce the 12 animals of he Zodiac in a series entitled Animal Song. My research note 3 described this set briefly. This is an enhanced version...

In 1968 Haku Maki completed his Animal Song series. It was 12 different prints, one for each year of the Chinese/Japanese zodiac. Each print had the title Animal Song and the kanji for the animal, which was not translated. This print, Animal Song [dragon], 14/50, is a beautiful Maki red. The dragon of the image is a very traditional Chinese character for dragon. In this print Maki used the theme dragon for the first time. This dashing abstract kanji seems to almost swirl out of the paper...

Around 1960 Haku Maki probably did the Ox as a woodblock print. He was then a young artist in Tokyo. He may have done some OX images before Michener did his now well known book, but probably not many: 510 were used in the book The Modern Japanese Print". The prints of Japanese artists included in the book are large-ish, it is not embossed...
Haku Maki was a well-known Japanese print maker of the second half of the 20th century About 20 of his work was called Big Red and a few Big Blue or Big Green. This is one of the rare big blue prints. By my reckoning he did about three true Big Blues, this is one of the 3. Until this true image appeared I only knew of a catalogue image which we enhanced into a nice blue here in Beijing. This is the Real Deal...

Maki Poem Z a Heart by any other name Maki began to use this theme early in his artistic life the character was normally vertical summits horizontal but this is the only time it was at an angle from the center and seemingly lacking in one stroke Hence it is an unusual design and intellectually challenging. Its meaning is not immediately evident even to the literati My curator in Beijing figured it out when she was opening the package and tilted it a bit. The print is large and subtle...

Haku Maki was undoubtedly Japan’s most prolific print maker of the second half of the 20th century. Many of his works were serious works of kanji and also ceramics. These three are perhaps a bit frivolous. The are actually pretty: each one has seeming globs of color The blue one on the left has kanji in the blue stone; the central one has a wonderful black kanji for Mountain in the center, and the one on the right four globs, each of a different color. And one splash.

dramatic kanji sun and splash This small Maki print epitomizes the Maki style at its height; the kanji streaks across the print, now it is blue now it is black; there is a strong black sun and a sharp yellow plash and the Maki seal. Yet it is not crowded. The maki seal at the right is a roll, the Maki of his name.

This Maki Big Red has the Kanji (Chinese character) for Flower as its theme. The Flower is red and strong; it is set off by a black Sun to the right. A blue tear balances the sun on the left. Maki’s seal in red ink paste, is below the tear, also at the left. Although Maki himself printed this image, the ink looks as if it was layered on by hand. This is 133/154; Print size is about 11” x 18”. We note: the paper in this print is smooth, it does not have the moon-surface effect...

Work 73-56 L (fish). This is the second of Maki’s three huge prints that I have owned. This is Work 73-56 L (fish). Several aspects of this image are intriguing. My archive of Maki prints reveals that Maki produced over 100 different images in 1973. I have been able to account for many of them: 1 to 50 and 99 to 110. I had never known what went in the middle. Now I know at least one was work 73-56, the third huge print that Maki did...

Haku Maki was an important Japanese modern print maker of the second half of the 20th Century. In the 1970s his work consisted of many abstract images of Chinese characters, kanji. Most are quickly recognizable by Chinese and Japanese. This one has befuddled and even annoyed some Asians who normally like Maki kanji. Here Maki is "in your face" a bit with a strong kanji which was translated into English, Nothing, by the artist Good friends like variations of this kanji: please open the link ful...
Some time ago one Connie Elrod offered me a set of the Maki zodiac in a formwat never seen before or since. These are not pulled from cement blocks Rather they seem to be printed lithographs One James Imal a friend of Maki who lives in California commissioned Maki to do a special zodiac set for the Lunar Year Imai seems to have sent a card every year to friends Imai and maybe other Imay sent them to his friend james elrod seemingly one every year for 12 years the designs are strong and ...
