Katsushika Hokusia

One of Aya Kato's influences. A lot of his work has been created by Japanese woodblocks. He is the master of Ukiyo-e. His work is based on landscapes and traditional Japanese life.
It looks as though Aya Kato has taken ideas from Hokusai's story telling through picture making. Plus a lot of Aya Kato's work is based on Japanese culture and she includes a lot of Japanese motifs in her work and this is similar to Hokusai's work. I also think she is influenced by his working method as she also uses printing to create her images.
