The practice of Japanese calligraphy – commonly known as Shodo – is more than art; it’s a harmonious and philosophical process that is expressed through a careful configuration of brush strokes. Japanese calligraphy fuses poetry, literature, and painting by possessing rhythm, emotion, aesthetics, and spirituality in one unique art form, and this perfect infusion is what makes it so special.
