KISS Ukiyo-e
The artwork shows a battle scene of the Japanese idol group MOMOIRO CLOVER Z (MCZ) in vibrant, bright, and colorful armor versus KISS as the black flame, fireball monster. In early 2015, MCZ released the song “Yume no Ukiyo ni Saitemina” (“Samurai Son”), written by Paul Stanley, and performed by MCZ and KISS, which became a #1 hit. This Ukiyo-e is inspired by the CD cover from the collaboration.

The KISS Ukiyo-e became a challenge for the Artisans, particularly for the Hand Printer because each original piece required 90 color layers per print.


Craftsmen: Ukiyo-e creation requires 3 highly skilled artisans

Illustrator: Masumi Ishikawa

Wood Carver: Kazuo Watanabe

Hand Printer: Hideo Yoshida



Quality over Quantity:

Since the prints are all handmade, to maintain the finest quality, we are only offering 200 prints at this time.

Due to the nature of this hand produced art form, colors and lines may vary in intensity between prints. This creates the uniqueness of each print and therefore allows everyone to have their own experience.


Size: 18.9 x 13.4inches (48 x 34cm)

The Ukiyo-e is unframed, and presented in a specially designed folio made specifically for the KISS Ukiyo-e series.



Material: Washi, traditionally hand-made Japanese Paper “Echizen kizuki housho”.

There is an additional craftsman behind the scenes. This “Echizen kizuki housho” is made by Shouhachi Yamaguchi in Fukui Prefecture. This Washi maker in Fukui has a history of 1500 years. Washi was used for preserving documents in the age of the samurai. The Washi is made of all natural fibers from the mulberry tree, allowing it to be very durable.
Ukiyo-e would not have its form unless the Artisans had this Washi paper. There are only 2 Washi craftsmen left to make this Echizen kizuki housho, and our provider is a certified national treasure of Japan.


Edition Numbering:

Each print will have an edition number. The numbers are chosen randomly.



Maintenance and Preservation:

Over time, the color will fade, which is part of the Ukiyo-e experience. Keep the Ukiyo-e out of direct sunlight, strong ultraviolet sources, and high humidity. Once the art is received, remove the folio from the plastic sheathe to allow it to breath.



Shipping:

Ukiyo-e will be carefully examined, packaged, and sent from Japan by courier service. Customers will receive a tracking number by email. Import duties will be taken care of by the Ukiyo-e Project.



Cancellation Policy:

A notification email will be sent once the items are ready to be shipped. Upon notification, the buyer will have 24 hours to cancel before the payment is processed. Once the credit card payment is processed, 5% will be charged for any cancellation following the 24-hour period.
