Once I learned the silk screening technique, I loved how you can use colors so freely. I started to look back into traditional Japanese woodblock prints, ukiyo-e, and I was so inspired with their use color. I love Harunobu, Hokusai, and Kuniyoshi. During their time, they would create larger prints by joining two or three sheets of paper into diptychs and triptychs. Since I needed to create larger works for Print Exhibition like the International Tokyo Print Biennial, I thought that it would be fun to do larger artworks in this traditional manner.
