The sosaku hanga (“creative prints”) movement embraced the individuality of the artist, thereby turning its back to the collaborative system of ukiyo-e and the print as a mass media. Whereas some sosaku hanga artists continued to work with traditional Japanese themes and woodblock printing many moved to abstract, surreal and non-Japanese subjects, as well as experimenting with Western printing methods such as silkscreen printing.
