Miss Hokusai

Miss Hokusai

Enough full time: 1814. The spot: Edo, currently known as Tokyo. A much accomplished artist of the period now in his mid-fifties, Tetsuzo tirelessly works in the garbage-loaded insanity of his own house-atelier, and can boast clients from all over Japan. He spends his days creating astounding pieces of art, from a Bodhidharma portrayed onto a 180 square sheet of paper, to a pair of sparrows painted on a grain grain that is very small. Third of all Tetsuzo's four daughters and created out of his second marriage, outspoken 23-year-old O Ei has inherited her father's talent and stubbornness, and often though uncredited, he would be painted in the place of by her. Her art is so powerful that sometimes leads to trouble. "We're father and daughter. With just two brushes and four chopsticks, I figure we could always afford, in a way or another."
