Start of the joyful season

標準

According to the old lunar calendar, yesterday marked the beginning of spring.

.

“Start” “Spring” “Excellent” “Fortune”

.

This phrase is a kind of a motto of that day and has been believed to work as a charm to drive away evils and bring in happiness.  I have once heard that people in ancient times sensed something auspicious because all the letters are bilaterally symmetrical.

.

For copying practice, I picked four characters from a book of collection of various letters written by my first teacher, the late Mr. Akiyama Kodo (秋山公道).  That book was compiled in a dictionary format by my senior calligrapher at his school.

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age six under the late Mr. 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.
