Hanga Ten is the only showcase in the UK and Europe specialising exclusively in contemporary Japanese prints. These prints are original works of art, almost always meticulously hand-printed by the artist themselves. Editions are strictly limited.
Hanga Ten means "Shop of Prints" in Japanese and was established in London nearly twenty years ago. We represent about thirty artists, either Japanese or foreign who have lived in Japan for many years. Most of our artists are well-known in their various field of print-making, and are represented in international collections throughout the world. A few however are young artists we have selected for their special talent. While styles vary from traditional Japanese scenes to the abstract, all have in common the technical excellence of their work based on the disciplines of Japanese print-making. While woodblock printing is of course prevalent in Japan's history, the modern-day Japanese print artist has excelled in techniques such as etching, mezzotint and silkscreen and you will find an amazing combination of precision, beauty and elegance in our repertoire.
