Presentation & Biography

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.
