About the work
This work is produced by Hanzou Co., Ltd., which inherits the traditional craft techniques of carving and printing that are the basis of ukiyo-e. It continues to take on new challenges while preserving tradition.
This time, they created “Contemporary Ukiyo-e” by collaborating with “Attack on Titan,” which is a representative work of Japan, and craftsmen of the traditional technique “Ukiyo-e woodblock print,” which represents Japan.
This is a full-scale work newly drawn by Ken Shiozaki, a Japanese painter who is also active as an ukiyo-e artist, down to the smallest detail.
The composition of this work has been arranged for the battle between the Survey Corps and the Titans in line with “Attack on Titan.” The overwhelming impact and presence are reflected inside by making the angle of view twice as large as that of a regular Ukiyo-e print.
