Photo of Japanese Calligrapher Kisyuu

Saturday, 2:00pm – 2:30pm, Street Stage

Born and raised in Japan, Kisyuu started learning calligraphy when she was seven and was given a calligraphy master name, “Kisyuu,” from her master at age 18. She has been working on her calligraphy installations, exhibitions, live performances, custom logo design, and commissioned art works, as she wishes to build a bridge through art to connect dots. Kisyuu creates big pieces of calligraphy art during her live perfor- mances. She uses a variety of brushes which are up to 100cm long to create her art.

Japanese calligraphy is known as a quiet, delicate art, but here she shows the possibility and a new aspect of Japanese calligraphy which is dynamic and lively.

土曜、午後2時〜2時半 ストリート・ステージ
