1000: The Spanish Steps (Uchida)

This most famous of the sights of Rome is usually swarming with artists and onlookers, but Uchida has filled it with flowers. But the artists have left their easels dotted around - and of course the Uchida trademark bicycle...

This puzzle uses hexachrome printing for extra-vivid colours.

Uchida was born in 1960 in Kyushu, and after a degree in fine arts from Aichi University of Education, became hooked on lone travelling. From there he was drawn into sketching, getting his first magazine publication in 1988. Since then he has kept travelling the world, and produced a whole series of book publications. Having spent three years in Perth, from 1991 to 1994, he regards Australia as his second home, but has also visited many parts of Europe and America.

Note that he writes his name in the "Western" order; Uchida is his family name.

* This puzzle is printed with more ink colours for extra-vivid effect.
