Saiseki & Shousyo

10/01/2005

I have tried promoting my hometown Yoshii-machi in Gunma prefecture aiming for the Tago stone monument in the town to be designated a national treasure and world heritage with calligraphy, related to the elegant style of the inscription on the monument. The first thing I decide before starting was my °»Gagou°… (°»Gagou°… means a nickname or a pen name.) I finally selected °»Saiseki°… (It measn a broken stone) as my Gagou. Saiseki can be seen everywhere and is very familiar, but provide a significant contribution behind the scenes such as in the foundations of homes and concrete. It also means broken soul of the King David in BC.

What I have written are °»Shousyo°… . °»Shousyo°… means the style of calligraphy that makes everyone smile and heal everyone°«s sorrow and worries. This style is not difficult to write at all, so anyone can produce a great work in the style.

I have written with some concept. I have had many private exhibitions of my calligraphy works with each concept. My works I provide at °»Wa no Wa°… are referred to as either concept.

1)Oyama no °»kana Bunbun°… exhibition
The humorous exhibition of the works written in only °»Hiragana°… or °»Katakana°…

2)°»Nasai°… (= Do it!) exhibition
We have the right to self-determination and self-responsibility on our life. Do it (something good or something bad). You Are The Choice.

3)°»Yanyan sheep°… exhibition
The exhibition of the works with the one character which left-hand radical is sheep in the motif of Mr.°…Gijin You(sheep)dafu°… (the mayor of Tago-gun, the first international city in Japan)

4)°»Boke°… (=stooge) exhibition
The exhibition of the works with a dot that I have made by accident during producing a work attached as the star. The exhibitions consist on four parts: life of the dot, Kana, Kanji and nice comeback. When we extend a dot we will make a line. All words are made with °»dots°… or °»line°…. So a dot is the starting point of all words. And when a dot happens to stooge, it turns to be an art. The Nakayoshi Boke ten (= Buddy-Buddy dots of stooge) holding hands with each other is my trademark.

5)°»Haji Kakimasyo°… (=let°«s feel humiliated) exhibition
The exhibition of the works with my embarrassing memory (or funny story) on the °»Haji°… (=edge) of a paper.

I have named my °»Shousyoen°… (=the garden of °»Shousyo°…) as °»Yamanne°…. About 300 of my works are exhibited there. I named so, because we can°«t stop smiling (= Yamanne) with °»Syousyo°…. I also established the private tutoring school for comedian calligrapher. I also have the calligraphy class named °»Comedian calligraphy school°…. If you would like to visit the class, please free to contact me at °»Wa no Wa°…. I would try to continue sending my works with the concept from Yoshii-machi in Gunma, the place that has the Tago stone monument and that is closely connected with writing.
