#Exhibitions

In Japan Kyuyo Ishikawa is considered a master of the art of calligraphy. Professor emeritus at Kyoto Seika University, he has achieved great international fame for his numerous studies on the language and history of calligraphy. He has over 1.000 works and more than 100 published books to his credit. Kyuyo Ishikawa far surpassed the standards established in post-war avant-garde calligraphy, reinvigorating the relationship between the expression of words and the brush and creating magical and fascinating worlds in which his painted strokes become like music. His works range beyond the realm of calligraphy and are becoming increasingly popular in the field of contemporary art. With the "brush erosion theory", which had a wide following in Japan and China, Kyuyo Ishikawa gives an interpretation of modern times and the evolution of calligraphy. According to the famous master, calligraphy went beyond the narrow field of form and sign, embracing other fields ranging from expression, to the Japanese language and even to the theory of culture and civilization.
