Teruhide Kato was born in 1936 and later studied at Kyoto Art College. He became a major contemporary kimono designer in a time when post-war art was flourishing, balancing tradition with modern design aesthetics. When he was 50 years old, he decided to follow his real passion, and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist. In terms of genres, he mostly concentrated on landscape scenery from his beloved hometown of Kyoto. Rich with architectural and natural beauty, Kato’s striking images capture the quiet magic of this beautiful city. After a gallery exhibition in New York and a book publication of his works titled ‘Kyoto Romance’ he was also recognised internationally. Kato’s artistic style is unique and, like his kimono designs, his woodblock prints interpret traditional Japanese imagery in a contemporary style.
