Art Exhibition in Tokyo

Art Exhibition in Tokyo


It has been a great honor to take part in the first art exhibition marking its 15th anniversary of my dear friend Hanako Takamiya’s calligraphy school, Shodō no Hanamichi.

It will be exhibited from 11/24 to 12/4 at a cozy book cafe Hama House in Tokyo Nihonbashi Hamachō, where one of her calligraphy classrooms is located.

From five year olds to the sixties, each of us put our soul into one kanji character in shikishi board(1).  Please visit and see how 200 of these artworks come together as one in harmony.

For me, this is the first time to present my work outside of my own master’s yearly school art show in Atlanta. I used the special calligraphy brush that  my friend Hanako sensei produced herself.  My daughter and I selected the kanji characters carefully reflecting our state of mind.  We worked on it as we imagine the smiles of Hanamichi school members, as we feel the space of the Hama House, as I wish the happiness of the each visitors. I am very grateful for Hanako sensei for giving me this special opportunity.

If you are in Japan now or will be during the show, please stop by Hama House to have a cup of nice tea or coffee, and enjoy the calligraphy art show.

(1) Shikishi board is one of the commonly used calligraphy paper board for artworks. Different sizes are available; the most standard is 9 1/2 inch x 10 3/4 inch.
