I am a Japanese calligraphy artist based in Kyoto, Japan.
Currently, I exhibit my works at solo and group exhibitions mainly in the US and Europe. “Sho” for which I aim is not what is known as traditional Japanese “sho”, but a modern “sho” that matches any scene in the world. Moreover, it is not avant-garde calligraphy, formative art with Indian ink, but I care much about writing words containing the aforementioned elements.
Other calligraphers use the technique of writing after a model, called rinsho, which they have learned and write so-called calligraphers‘ characters. On the other hand, in my case, I try to once forget what I have learned so far and start with a clean slate to write characters like a child who writes characters innocently. Even so, the lines of characters should be exquisite which only realized by an accomplished calligrapher.
I write characters and each character has its own meaning. I would like people to see my works with the meaning of each character in mind. I hope my works will make you feel relaxed, inspired, think of peace, or feel something.
