Oshin Imai

Oshin Imai was active/lived in Japan.  Oshin Imai is known for sculpture.

Biography   Oshin Imai


Oshin worked in Kyoto and was one of the most sought-after carvers during the heyday of sencha from the Meiji era to the early Showa era. It is said that he moved to Kitakyushu in the 1940s and spent his twilight years living on the charity of friends in exchange for pieces of his art. In characteristic style, Oshin here intervened as little as possible in the natural form of his chosen material, only altering it enough to make it look like an ascending dragon.
