Photo of Japanese Calligrapher Kisyuu

Saturday, 1:00pm1:30pm, 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. Kisyuu creates big pieces of calligraphy art during her live performances. 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.
