Which do you prefer? 長鋒で書いたのと普通の筆を使ったのと


Both have same motif, a tanka poem <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanka> with a dash of grotesqueness by Chūya Nakahara. < https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chūya_Nakahara


For the yellow paper, I used a brush with a batch of longer tissues than normal ones, while for the white paper, I used a normal type of brush.

As you may be aware, it is difficult to handle a brush with long hair skillfully. But if you succeed, it can create interesting lines, and I like using those brushes.


When I open my eyes on a winter night/

I fancy an apparition of a girl with silver eyes/

Stands in the darkness/

yushokai について

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
