Between the late 1960s and early 1980s, Masami Teraoka became widely known for his watercolors and prints based on the ukiyo-e prints of Edo-period Japan. In these prints he combined the cultures of Japan and his new home in California, blending fresh whimsey with deep cultural critique. From this period sprung several watercolor and print series, such as “New Views of Mt. Fuji,” “31 Flavors Invading Japan” “McDonalds Hamburgers Invades Japan” and the “Hanauma Bay Series.”
Samuel Freeman is excited to announce a show of prints and drawings from this segment of Teraoka’s career. Included will be editions of his most well known prints, as well as previously un-exhibited fragments and studies from his early watercolors.
