Internationally Well-Known Calligrapher From Shizuoka, Masafumi Koshio's Exhibition.
At the age of 7, Mr. Koshio started his path of Calligraphy, and has gone on to be in Martial Arts of Karate and Kendo since childhood, and thereby he has accompanied himself with the spirit of "Doh" which is the integral part of Japan culture.
Under his policy of "One's way of Calligraphy commensurates with his or her self-expression hence one's self is the identity of his or her way of Calligraphy.", Mr. Koshio does not only compete in calligraphic skills but also never keeps his way of Calligraphy to be the same as before. He rather carries on to make a difference in his works following the teaching of classic calligraphy.
Introduction from Mr. Koshio :
I do define "a calligrapher" as a person who has enough creativity to make his works in different ways from "pretty obvious and understood ones" to "abstract and vague designs". So it is no acceptable that Calligraphers cannot do his or her works of calligraphy only designed.
I express my works in a calligraphic and visional way with my calligraphic skills and techniques while enjoying "Calligraphy" at the edge between "Calligraphy" and "Designing" that I have searched.
From Easy-to-understand, beautiful traditional characters to calligraphic art are expressed by my own self.
I challenged myself to put in this unconventional three-dimensional exhibition my two-dimensional works that even are constructed in a three-dimensional way.
Please indulge yourself in the mode in the exhibition expressed by the spaces in my works.
