Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s monsters, skeletons and ghosts

by | 29th, October 2016

On Flashbak: Japanese artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s 19th century woodcuts of monsters, ghosts and legends. Made in the mid-1800s, these woodcuts still look fresh and modern. The mix of colour and powerful lines give the picures energy and cinematic feel. The skeleton triptych is terrifying.
