In addition to making his own color woodcuts, Shinohara's role as master carver and printer have led him to collaborate on prints with contemporary artists such as Mel Bochner, Chuck Close, Sean Scully, John Newman, and Robert Cottingham. Unlike many søsaku-hanga artists, who had some academic training in art and then explored traditional printmaking methods, Shinohara reversed this approach, first mastering the technical aspects of woodblock carving and printing and then using this knowledge to develop his own artistic style.
