Exhibition at the Cultural Exchange Center
Ukiyo-e, featuring the artwork of Yuki Canton
July through December 2024


Yuki Caton, a Japanese artist, creates her artwork by superimposing digital Ukiyo-e tracings over her nature photography. She named this original style of Ukiyo-e art as “Yukiyoe.” The idea for this style of composition was first suggested to her by a friend, who asked Caton to enhance her friend’s photo by using Ukiyo-e art design.

Two of Yuki’s designs were selected as the official art for the 52nd Annual Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival poster (and its booklet) in 2019 and the 4th Annual Osaka Matsuri SF poster in 2019.

* Please call us to check if the exhibit will be open to the public on the day of your visit.
