The title shows the meaning of the written words, 世界は一つ, the world is one. I created this work in hope of world peace. I hope that one day the world will be united as one. This is modern-style Japanese calligraphy on paper. The paper is Chinese Xuan paper, which is renowned for being soft and fine texture.

Sumi ink is made by rubbing the ink stick on the inkstone to create the best color for the image before writing. Japanese brushes I use are handmade by artisans using sheep's wool.

Hiroshi Wada is a Japanese calligraphy artist based in Kyoto, Japan.

Currently, he exhibits his works at solo and group exhibitions mainly in the US and Europe. His aim is not to create what is known as traditional Japanese “sho”, calligraphy, but a modern style “sho” that matches any scene in the world. Moreover, it is not avant-garde calligraphy, formative art with Indian ink, but he cares much about writing words containing the aforementioned elements.

Most calligraphers use the technique of writing after a model, called rinsho, which they have learned and write so-called calligraphers ‘characters. On the other hand, he tries to once forget what he has learned so far and start with a clean slate to write characters like a child who writes characters innocently. Even so, he focuses on the lines, which should be exquisite which only realized by an accomplished calligrapher.

He writes characters and each character has its own meaning. He hopes the viewer to find the words and its meaning in his work. And it will make them feel relaxed, inspired, think of peace, or feel something on their own way.
