Sadao Watanabe

When I was visiting Okinawa this past summer I became aware of Japanese printmaker, Sadao Watanabe. His work is very interesting for he takes biblical subjects and scenes and renders them in a traditional style of Japanese folk art. He uses paper made from mulberry trees and traditional organic and mineral pigments.
