Scriptum Inc

Berkeley, CA

Scriptum presents Fine Japanese Prints (and some Chinese Works), created over centuries, from Traditional to Modern and Contemporary Prints. These Works are carefully selected for a wide choice in subject matter, historical interest, varied technique, beauty, and fascination. A fine Japanese Print, well taken care of, never loses its appeal or value. These works are as varied and interesting as the Artists who created them and are based on the long tradition of craftsmanship and aesthetic sensibility that has developed in Japan over centuries.
In addition, Scriptum introduces Contemporary Japanese Artists and Works that are not yet widely known. These Artists' outstanding techniques and subject matter are based on the historical excellence of Japanese Printmaking, yet they look to the world-at-large or to nature for inspiration and with their colorful new aesthetic.
