means calligraphy and to write. Japanese calligraphy is a form of artistic writing of the Japanese language created using a brush and ink. Originally, calligraphy was used as the base communication tool, but is now becoming part of the expressive arts. Kisyuu uses calligraphy as a tool to express and communicate herself to others through her style that incorporates both the traditional and the unconventional styles of calligraphy. She believes in the power of art, and her goal is to connect dots through her calligraphy to make world peace.
Kisyuu(姫洲) is a Japanese Calligrapher who creates both traditional and modern style multimedia calligraphy. She started learning calligraphy at the age of 7 and received her calligrapher name Kisyuu from her master when she was 18. She runs monthly workshops and performs at some events to introduce the beauty and joy of this Japanese traditional art to people all over the world.
