Country Hills Community Library

Event Details

Mark has been creating art for the past fifteen years, and has had his paper cuttings displayed in Japan, China, Chicago, and many locations throughout Southern Ontario. He was introduced to the art form by Yasuyuki Okamura in April, 2004 during a trip to Japan. Mr. Okamura is a kiri-e artist and teacher (kiri-e is a Japanese method of paper cutting), who taught Mark the basics of this art form, and has continued teaching him during subsequent visits. For the past ten years Mark has been focusing on kiri-e, and having been to Japan several times, mostly creates works from pictures that he has taken while there.
