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...

Haku Maki did quite a number of prints using persimmon as a main theme Probably well over 100 He also began doing prints with ceramics around 1980 He probably did more than 100 ceramics theme prints. But the two there only came together in the persimmon and blue vase print shown here (and in an equally rare one with a persimmon and a strikingly beautiful yellow vase,) “This persimmon and vase print was done in the mid-70s and is quite rare: I have only seen the one shown here...

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.

From 1969 to 1974 Haku Maki produced about 15 Big Red prints and some Big Blue and Green. This one Poem 71 52- was done in 1971. It depicts the kanji for Power. This striking image slices through the black background from top to bottom in a two-stroke movement. In the classic Maki mode the core image is set off by a black sun at the left and a small blue moon under it; on the other side there is a yellow 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.

1971 was a big year for Haku Maki He did over 100 different images of Japanese prints. Some, like this one, were big prints this one is 30.5 Inches x 15.25 It is 68/108 this is the abstract kanji for Mu or Nothing and I entitled Nothing The kanji starts at the top then cascades down to the final four strokes at he bottom. From a distance it appears to me like the steps going from top to bottom of a building on a Chinese hill on the Yangzi...

In late 2011 I received several maki prints of 1981 these all have leather like surfaces: I thought this was a phenomenon of that year. I was wrong Maki actually used this surface in 1971 for a few Persimmon prints and then not again until 1981 I show here copies from my Maki archives. When we filed those images a long time ago, they were not clear enough, are still not. But I think they are with that leather like finish. Any views Most gratefully received...

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...
