Expressed in color based on calligraphy

Brush art is an art using calligraphy brushes

The use of color in calligraphy that has long been a familiar and protected Japanese culture has opened up a new world.

 

At Brush Art Japan, we are making works with the theme of "calligraphy that can heal the mind" in color calligraphy.

 

To be more specific, we carefully preserve the brushstrokes, calligraphy, and techniques that are the foundation of calligraphy, add an artistic perspective, and use gradations, multicolors, and three-dimensional appearances to establish a unique worldview. doing.

 

When doing color calligraphy, the first thing I wanted to do was create a beautiful calligraphy.

 

I learned that color has the power to affect the deep psychology of humans. Blue naturally calms the mind,

 

There is an image of trust and honesty. The green color represents peace and peace and has a calming effect.

 

I learned that color has many other effects on humans.

 

Calligraphy is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. I can't write the same thing again.

 

In order to write, you must know the meaning of kanji, and calm down and concentrate on writing.

 

I think there are quite a few people who are not good at calligraphy.

 

Just by making such calligraphy in color, fun and beautiful art is completed.

 

It has the advantage of being able to express Japanese spring, summer, autumn and winter, and being able to use many typefaces.

 

There are also typefaces that express expressions, such as block, line, cursive, slave, and seal.

 

In brush art, you can select a typeface that is appropriate for expressing the meaning of the kanji, and inflate the image from it and draw it in color.

 

You may be asking about color calligraphy. You can know the deep psychology of human beings deeply with colors.

 

You will also be surprised at the quality of the lines and the many things you can do with a brush by pursuing calligraphy deeply. You can also learn how to use the brush in rhythm, open and close the brush, and write slowly.

 

The calligraphy reflects the mental state of the writer, and by interacting with paper, you can nullify your mind and by concentrating you can meet a new self born from a pure white world.

 

That's why I can't leave calligraphy.


The meaning of promoting color calligraphy

The reason I continue to work on color calligraphy is to start out with an interest in what would happen if I changed the calligraphy from black ink to gorgeous ones, and I felt that possibility.

 

At present, there is no chance to hold a brush and the calligraphy population is only decreasing.

 

By using colors, I can create works that are healed, make gorgeous works, and express expressions I have never seen before.

 

From such a thing, I gradually became interested in kanji and characters, I wanted to know more about calligraphy brushwork

 

I came to be interested in craftsmen who make calligraphy brushes, and because of the psychological effect of color, such voices actually came to me from young people Was.

 

It would be great if you could continue callingigraphy and learn that there is a more playful way of expressing it.

 

However, brush calligraphy is currently only my work.

 

I can't say much about the increase in the number of people who are working on color calligraphy, but I'm glad if I have more opportunities to hold a brush on my own, and it is my pleasure.

 

Since I started color calligraphy in 2010, I have been able to face my self-confidence and have time to heal my heart.

 

From the old days to the present day, the creator puts multiple colors on a single brush with the colors and images emanating from the meaning of the kanji that are breathing while changing its shape, and the gradation is also given out and three-dimensionally.

 

You can't rewrite, you can't write the same thing again.

 

To do so, it is important to imagine and express.

 

I began to think about how to make colors and the beauty of margins.

 

There are many possibilities for color calligraphy.

 

What I'm expressing is only a small part. I hope we can all share and grow together.

 

That has led to the promotion of color calligraphy.
