Junichiro Sekino was born in Aomori Prefecture, Japan, in 1914. He began making wood print art while still in middle school before formally pursuing etching with Kon Junzo. While largely a self-taught artist, having closely studied available material on woodblock carving and printing while still young, he did study etching at Nishida Takeo’s Japanese Etching Institute and oil painting and drawing at a private painting school.
Not limited to portraiture, Sekino also portrayed cityscapes, rural scenes, animals, still lifes, landscapes, and abstract works. While most famous for his woodblock prints, Sekino also worked with lithography and etching, founding the Japanese Etcher’s Society in 1953. He also contributed to numerous book designs.
