He was a sosaku-hanga artist in 20th century, Japan. During World War II, he was trained as a kamikaze pilot in the Japanese air force, but the war ended before he was assigned a mission. Haku had no formal art training, but studied for two years with the sosaku-hanga artist Onchi Koshiro, (1891-1955). In 1962, he started adding texture to his prints. In 1965, he began embossing designs into unprinted paper by using a press to transfer a design created in cement on a carved plywood board, and then adding color with stencils. The artist participated in the Tokyo International Print Biennale in 1957 and 1960. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are among the public collections holding prints by Haku Maki.
