Memorial Exhibition, Works of Shishū Liberate --Sou (thought)--

We would like to introduce the special exhibition of the works of Shishū for the 40th Anniversary of the galerie nichido Fukuoka.

Shishū (calligrapher/ artist)
Shishū is an artist mainly worked on calligraphy. She acquired Japanese culture as the calligraphy and dancing from her childhood, and after becoming a calligrapher, she devoted herself to learn wide range of traditional art in Nara and Kyoto. Shishū attended Their Imperial Majesties in her exhibition in 2017. She received the first prize as well as the gold prize from the awarding committee in the exhibition of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, at the basement hall of the Louvre Museum. In the World Expo 2015 in Milan (Italy), she was in charge of the art works of the Japan Pavilion and won the first gold prize at the world expo.
She continues to send out the thought and culture of Japan to the world, and her works that express the emotions and nature of the handwriting characters, are appreciated as the transcendental modern art across various art fields, not restricted herself only to calligraphy.
