Hokusai, a Japanese artist, created this iconic woodblock print using the traditional Japanese ukiyo-e technique. The Wave’s popularity comes from its relatability. It is an epic scene of human struggle and natural terror. The simple and powerful composition of the mountain and the shape of the wave strikes right at the heart of the observer.
Mr. X’s sharp attention to detail and design elevates this patch to the next level. The wave is bold to capture your attention above all the other elements. Mr. X dimmed the background sky for a pleasant effect, which allows the wave to keep strong focus. All the components and the overall feeling of the original painting is expertly conveyed in these stitches!
