Katsuyuki Nishijima was born in 1945 in the province of Yamaguchi, Japan. He studied the art of woodblock printing in the studios of the Mikumo publising group in Kyoto. From 1965 to 1970, Katsuyuki Nishijima exhibited with the artist group Kyoto Independents 1965-1970 and in solo and group art shows.
The art of Katsuyuki Nishijima has one thing in common with the shin hanga movement of artists like Hasui Kawase, Tsuchiya Koitsu and Ito Shinsui. His prints show a romantic image of Japan that has little to do with reality. Views of old shop entrances in Kyoto, farmhouses with thatched roofs, old rural store houses, colourful umbrellas, old store signs, wooden bridges and stone walls. This is the world depicted by Katsuyuki Nishijima.
