Medicom Toy
2,500 €

This Bearbrick Statue is a limited edition from the Japanese collectible toy manufacturer Medicom Toy . Modeled after the the Edo Period Ukiyo-e Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's iconic woodblock print "Under the Wave off Kanagawa" (also known as The Great Wave); it is the first print of the series titled Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji. Katsushika Hokusai became world-famous through his picture series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji”. It includes the famous “Great Wave off Kanagawa”. In his homeland Japan, Hokusai’s work was rather considered as “everyday graphics”, whereas in Europe his art contributed to Japonism, inspired artists like Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt and also influenced Art Nouveau. This series of prints is characterized by the significant use of Prussian blue, a new color fashionable in the 1830s, and by the occasional use of Western techniques for representing perspective. Figures and objects were depicted according to their importance, and not according to their actual size, proximity or distance. More details on Bearbrick Statue 1000% - Hokusai - The Great Wave:

    Hokusai was a Japanese artist, who was actually known by at least 30 different names throughout his lifetime. This was relatively common in his culture, although his names in particular directly related to his artistic production and style. He is most notable for his Ukiyo-e woodblock prints and extended his cultural reach worldwide in his time. Although he studied art since a very young age, his greatest work occurred after the age of 60. He is famous for his woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, which consists of 46 prints. This series included The Great Wave print, which earned him fame both in Japan and overseas. His work influenced 19th century Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, and even the larger Impressionist movement. Not only this, but he could also be considered the “founding father” of the modern Manga movement, which is still a vibrant and healthy genre to this day.
