Zane Fix

World-renowned guru of Jap Pop Art - Zane Fix, is an American artist, born in Brooklyn, New York.
The art of Zane Fix blends both the intensity and simplicity of Japanese woodblock prints with the pop sensibility of
early and mid 20th century western pop and commercial art.
Mr. Fix began honing his skills of draftsmanship as a child by interpreting the works of Hokusai,Sharaku, and
Utamaro. He attended Cooper Union School of Architecture. In 1997, he travelled to Kyoto, Japan, and began on
the path that led him to his current incarnation as the guru of Jap Pop Art.
Original pieces are labor and time intensive; utilizing techniques he learned as an architectural draftsman and
apprentice sumi-e painter, and woodblock cutter. Mr. Fix uses brush, pen, ink and wax pencils on various
handmade rice papers.
In his own words “It’s all done by hand, no computer magic, baby!”

from Japan”.
