Shodo is the Japanese art of calligraphy.
Haiku is poetry based on three lines of 5-7-5 syllables
Being a visual artist living in Japan I am exploring these three Japanese elements and my painting. My morning routine is to read a zengo, paint, practice shodo of the zengo and compose what I call a ” Myku ” from thoughts that drift into my head and reaction to the elements about me. I am not striving to be classical but to experience these things leaving a manifestation of the process.
The zengo I am currently using come from “Shodo, the quiet art of Japanese Zen Calligraphy” by Shozo Sato.
