Ray Morimura

Ray was born in Tokyo in 1948. After his studies he began his career as an abstract painter.  Now days he is well known for his illustrations, in which we can still find elements of his earlier practice. Landscapes are the main subjects for Ray’s latest works, which are made with different techniques involving engraved wood panels.
