This information about the artist and his spectacular work is excerpted from his web site:

"Otsuka's work today is a powerful balance of ancient Eastern techniques and modern Western ideas … Otsuka came to the West — to Hawaii — in 1979. Until that time his painting had been historical in subject and theme … Otsuka's compositions have evolved to a decorative elegance, achieving an important transition: a cross-cultural excellence that not only appeals to East and West artistically, but also brings them together in understanding."
This stunning print is being offered here for an opening bid well below the current on-line retail gallery price.
