History

In 1975, no print workshops other than Print House OM had the expertise in reproducing original works of artists through printmaking techniques.
Print House OM was the first printmaking studio that reproduced masterpieces of late artists using lithography technique. However, at that time, reproducing masterpieces of art works was not yet perceived as something desirable and some people explicitly protested against it.

However, Print House OM’s challenge against the tide of that time eventually opened the door for the new era. Soon afterwards, the time took a turn and the art publishing boom has arrived. The print publishing and sales industries became increasingly prosperous.
By then, reproducing art works of late artists was no longer something undesirable, but they actively reproduced art works of live artists as well.

 

Cooperative Ventures

Print House OM has got involved in cooperative ventures with artists and these partnerships resulted in the production of new and innovative works in the print medium.


The collaborative works includes those with Tatsuo Takayama, well-known artist in the world of traditional Japanese painting, and with Kojin Toneyama, established artist of oil painting.

 

Master Takayama and Print House OM’s owner and printmaker Ozaki have worked together for over 30 years -- from a book on Takayama’s etching works called ‘Sei-Kazoku’(Saint Family) published in1976 to ‘Gen no Gen’ a book on lithography works Takayama published in 2006 at the age of 93.

 

Master Toneyama called Print House OM ‘my atelier’. He has put a lot of energy in creating print works along with his oil painting and mural painting. Over 14 years, he has made approximately 600 print works in lithography and etching in Print House OM.
