ART of Sho – Hiroshi Wada
“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 it is more legible and comprehensible with containing the aforementioned elements.
Other calligraphers use the technique of writing after a model,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 such lines as only a proficient calligrapher can draw and the characters should be avant-garde but readable. This is the calligraphy I wish to achieve.
I write characters and each character has a 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.
