Zen Buddhism and a modern take on East Asian woodblock prints are perfectly paired in the Now and Zen wall calendar. With their unique perspective and geometric forms, Ray Morimura's breathtaking depictions of Japanese landscapes draw us into a magical world of tranquil gardens, extraordinary temples, and quiet villages. Together with the wise words of contemporary Zen masters, Morimura's stirring prints convey a sense of eternal peace and harmony.
Tokyo-born artist Ray Morimura is one of the foremost woodblock printers of his generation. His stunning woodblock and linocut prints juxtapose traditional scenes and subjects and modern techniques. Morimura's work has been exhibited in Tokyo, Seattle, Kanagawa, and New York, and at the CWAJ Print Show in Tokyo since 1990.
