Life with Passion

I began to learn the basics about calligraphy from 5-year-old, and I was drawn

into this black and white world since then.
I was beyond the limit of it after a long time, and unconsciously developed toward art.

Calligraphy is a plastic art of characters written by Chinese ink and a brush
The brush movement, shade of the ink, beauty of the entire deployment, and meaning

of the characters written are expressed.
There is a kind of calligraphy called avant-garde calligraphy.
In the white space, it's like drawing an abstract painting.
I was attracted by this expression's freedom to deliver messages from myself directly to viewers.

And then, after repeated experiments, I finally found my original ink and the texture

that can only be expressed using it.
