Rihaku Inoue and Koichi Terai: Fusion of Japanese calligraphy and Painting
June 15 - 21, 2016
opening reception Thursday June 16, 6-8pm
Sho is the art of the moment. Sho is the art that Japan boasts to the world. Sho is the art in which you can express your energy; your calmness and comfort. There are no borders to the concept of Japanese characters.
Ms. Rihaku Inoue is a calligraphy artist, consultant of the Japan Calligraphy Museum, and a calligraphy professor of the Japan Education Calligraphy Federation. She is also a member of the A.M.S.C (Art Maison Selecting Committee / Spain) and Paje de Los Suenos Foundation (Madrid, Spain).
Koichi Terai studied art at Tokyo National University of Fine Art and Music and originally had an interest in European classical works. Terai's main theme is natural phenomenon, such as the earth, air, trees, water, light, sounds, and so on. He also expresses people's inherent qualities. He breathes his expression and the movement of his soul into the art and creates works that move people. Recently, he has also used contemporary Japanese style as his theme.
