Matazo Kayama’s Wednesday Wolf

Matazo Kayama (1927-2004) was a Japanese artist who used traditional Nihonga techniques and conventions in his paintings. Animals were a prevalent theme in his repertoire, some of which you can see below.  Can you spot the wolves?

I’ve added two extra paintings because I think they are quite lovely.

  1. If you’d like to see some more gorgeous nihonga paintings, look at Makoto Fujimura’s work- breathtaking.
