Kyoto / maiko
A stylized spring scene depicts a Maiko, apprentice Geiko (Geisha), taking a stroll under the cherry blossom tree in Kyoto. In this artwork, the artist Anna Maia found her inspiration from her first visit to Japan. During this trip, she visited the Gion district in Kyoto where she was very fortunate to get a glimpse of both Geiko (Geisha) and Maiko. You can read more about the Gion district here. In Kyoto the word Geiko is used for the profession of Geisha. Read more about the tradition of Geiko here.
Number six in a series of graphic prints by Anna Maia, featuring traditional Japanese patterns and objects.
This Maiko art is printed on 290 gsm Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper. This paper is made from 90% bamboo fibre and 10% cotton fibre, making it highly sustainable. Its warm natural white tone, along with a light felt texture, wonderfully enhances the art.
