Gallery Reception: Yoshito Arichi

It was an encounter with a fellow artist while living in the United States that inspired Yoshito Arichi to explore a new artistic path.

The accomplished printmaker was introduced to copper sculpture by eminent American artist Elliot Offner during his time as a visiting artist at Smith College, in Massachusetts, in 1986.

From May 22 to June 11, Arichi displays a collection of his copperplate prints and bronze sculptures at the Frederick Harris Gallery.

The 68-year-old says he is fascinated by the possibilities offered by bronze as a medium.

Originally from Hiroshima, he completed a printmaking course at Britain’s Bradford College of Art and Design and exhibited his copperplate prints throughout the world before embarking on a fellowship in the US.

Now a professor at Nihon University College of Art, he adheres a collage of gold and silver sheets to his award-winning prints to produce a metallic finish.
