A master of printmaking and an imagination of great heights, Tomiyuki Sakuta created intricate and finely tuned prints depicting wildly composed faces, 100 to be exact. Each piece comes in a wooden box decorated with a copper plate with the title of the series engraved, accompanied with a grinning face. The cherry on top, a dark purple ribbon in the tradition of the Japanese tea ceremonies. Whimsical and obscure, 100 Faces is a marvelous show of fun and horror.
