Ink, Paper, and Soul: The Calligraphy of Yoshiyasu Fujii

Calligraphy by Yoshiyasu Fujii

This exhibition of calligraphy by Master Calligrapher Yoshiyasu Fujii will be on display in the Tanabe Gallery from May 27-June 11.


Master Calligrapher Yoshiyasu Fujii began calligraphy studies at the age of five, in his childhood home of Saga, Japan. Fujii’s profound knowledge and mastery of the technique and history of calligraphy are the key to his freedom in creativity. Though he devotes a great deal of his time and efforts in continuing his teacher’s legacy to promote the cultural and academic education of Japanese calligraphy, Fujii is also passionate about expanding the art of calligraphy as a legitimate art form in the Western world. The goal of Meito Shodo-Kai Japanese Calligraphy Association is for as many of the world’s people to know and understand properly the art of Japanese calligraphy.
