|About the Artist:
Fred Fimio is primarily a collector of Japanese Samurai Art and Antiquities. He is also author of several books on that subject. Occasionally he dabbles in painting.
While collecting antique Japanese Woodblock prints, Fred was disappointed to not be able to find prints of Samurai in close personal combat. There just weren't any to be found, so he invested his time into creating his own.
Acrylic Ink was chosen as the medium because of the fine work required to do justice to the silk braiding which formed the greater part of the Samurai armor.
