Art of Black and White
Calligraphy is fused with a bright world of space and expression .
That is what I have been searching after.

The moment classical notion of art gets together with modern notion of art, a new world is created out there. Canvas clashes against sensibility and then a soul is inspired, where solid inspiration exists and I can identify solid myself .

Where nothing turns to be nothing , letters present themselves through me as a human being. Nerve –stretched moment is indescribably irresistible to me, because I feel as if subject of me and object emerging , naturally merged into one with no intention.
How wonderful could it be if I shared the very wonder with many people .It is neither figuration nor appearance. It is the meaning and the essence that count, because I always and sincerely must watch myself in a broader point of view.

I can be the most honest when I face Writing. Our everyday life is full of lies and deception. The ugliness is void and empty in the behavior of Writing. So, I wish to express myself through Writing which inspires various scenes of daily life in me , bringing fresh images and ideas to me. Trusting my sensitivity, I would like to establish the world of my own. That's the way, I believe , I should behave as an artist.

Hoping to inspire as many people as possible, even one more single person, and meet as many people as many can be, I will devote my life to Writing.Various meetings and experiences can grow me big and give me power that can create something new.

Through collaborations with the varied fields, I will quest for possibility of Writing..
I hope to further pass Beauty of Japan on to the world. That is what I honestly wish.
