Masaaki Hatsumi: Art Prints

The 2017 Dojo Giga Art Exhibition

In February of 2017, Hatsumi Sensei exhibited a selection of his paintings at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo. Until the time of the exhibition, he had displayed some of them at his dojo, but this was an unprecedented opportunity for the public. 

To publicize and commemorate this historic exhibition, we made a set of 13 prints. Each print is professionally designed and photographed, and printed on acid-free, archival quality paper, made to last 100 years.

Each set of 13 prints includes one hand-numbered, limited edition, Exhibition Print which features the date and location of Sensei’s first Dojo Giga art exhibition. We only made 500 of these exhibition prints — get yours while supplies last.

Interview with the artist

In this 2016 interview, Hatsumi Sensei discusses the paintings featured on our prints.


Two Sizes

Our prints are available in two sizes: Arch D (24 x 36 inches) for North America and A1 (594 x 841 mm) for international destinations. We printed and then trimmed to commercial paper sizes (to avoid those rediculously overpriced frame prices). At these commercial paper sizes, you’ll find nice frames at great prices!

Your prints will all be the same size so they’ll all fit the same frame. With just two frames, you could show the exhibition print in one, and with the other you could display a different print every month!

We’re closing our prints warehouse. 

— Order deadline: Dec 20th 2020 —

24 x 36 inch prints are nearly sold out (and A1 size is nearly gone too) so it’s time to close our prints warehouse. The printing method we used produced great results, but it’s only economical at large print volumes so we’ll never print these again. At 50% off, these prints are a great gift idea! Get yours before December 20th, 2020. 


For the US and Canada, we recommend 24 x 36 inch size. Delivery to US & Canada is $55. Just 2 sets remain.


Outside the US & Canada we recommend A1 size (594 x 841 mm). Delivery to Europe, Australia, NZ, and Mexico is $65. Fewer than 15 sets remain.


A Meditation on Meisō 瞑想 

In June of 2020 Paul Masse and I chatted at Kasumi An in Noda City (Chiba Prefecture, Japan) about Hatsumi Sensei’s next art book, Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Earth. We also discussed Heaven and Dojo Art and Art Prints. This short clip is focused on our discussion of Hatsumi Sensei’s painting titled meisō 瞑想, meaning “Meditation”.

Download the free PDFs

Sensei’s paintings don’t pull punches. Understanding his works requires knowledge of Japanese language, culture, art, religion, history and the specific traditions of his dojo. To help fill gaps our book, Masaaki Hatsumi: Dojo Giga | Heaven offers an appendix with commentary, essays for context, and comments from the artist. We also offer PDF documents (one for each print) which you can download. Some of the 13 PDFs are below and we’ll post more soon. We hope these will help you enjoy your prints.
