  • Mizuho KOYAMA Calli-Graphiti
Joyeux  mélange  de Graffiti et de calligraphie au service des plus beaux poèmes ---
Up to now, only a few creators derived from Japanese sho, such as Yu-ichi INOUE and Toko SHINODA, have been recognized on the global art scene. But today, we are witnessing the emergence of a new liberator of sho who creates an original world  while employing an innovative  style different from those of her predecessors. The name of this artist is Mizuho KOYAMA.
She devoted herself for many years to the study of calligraphy under a teacher who placed a high value on traditional sho. Subsequently, in the course of her exploration of her own expressions, she has eagerly read, listened to and paid close attention to a variety of things including poems and stories in order to absorb them, a practice that has eventually enabled her to make three innovations.
Her first innovation has been to make use of poetry in English and other types of alphanumeric writing that people all over the world can read.
Secondly, she has incorporated factors taken from the free graffiti that grew up on the streets of New York, which can be regarded as the extreme opposite from traditional sho with its rigid rules of character expression.
Thirdly, she has ingeniously harmonized on paper the classics and techniques of sho that she has learned with the two innovations above to establish her original style of expression.
At the core of these three successful innovations is her grand wish to create works that touch the conscience and aesthetic sense shared by people around the world deep in their hearts beyond
the borders of nationality, religion and the era—a wish that she expresses in simple black and white.

  • 🏯 A Francoforte, nascosto dietro delle mura bianche, c'è un giardino orientale che è un'oasi di tranquillità: Bethmannpark.
🗓️ Creato nel 1989 con elementi originali importati: padiglioni con pagode curve, ponti in filigrana sul laghetto verde giapponese con ninfee e una roccia di loto. I vecchi alberi si armonizzano con la vegetazione dell'estremo oriente.
✍🏻 Un luogo in cui amava passeggiare e trarre ispirazione anche Goethe.
🙏🏻 Per commemorare il massacro di Piazza Tiananmen, dal 1989 si chiama "Giardino Tiananmen".

  • Много-много деталек и скульптурок, которые хочется порассматривать... Источники имеются рядом с каждым храмом. Прежде чем помолиться богу, следует зачерпнуть воду ковшиком, ополоснуть руки, лицо и прополоскать рот. #japanesesculpture

  • I just acquired this astounding 12-inch Meiji-era figure of a samurai from a local collector. (As you can hear, even my canaries are excited about it.) #meiji #japanesesculpture
