About the Book
Tomio Nitto is a Japanese artist who has lived and worked in Toronto for over forty years. A successful illustrator before the turn of the century, he is represented by the prestigious graphic design studio REACTOR, working for major magazines and commercial clients in Canada and the United States.
Ocean Pounds is a platform for a number of art-driven projects, founded in 1995 (Hong Kong) by photo-based artists Holly Lee and Lee Ka-sing, headquartered in Toronto since 2000. Ocean Pounds is also a primo spot to acquire Holly and Ka-sing’s work - from the very recent to vintages dated back to late 70’s. Furthermore, it acts adequately as a venue to locate fine art pieces from their past organized projects (Gallery, Representation, Print Program), with work from prominent artists notably Nobuyoshi Araki, Christopher Doyle, Yau Leung and Yao Jui-chung.
