HIROSHI WADA (和田 浩志)

Artexpo New York
April 4 – April 7, 2019
Reception: Friday, April 5, 2019 6-8 PM

Born in Kyoto, and schooled by some of the great masters, Hiroshi Wada aspires to modernize the ancient practice of “shodo” – brush and ink drawing on rice paper. Wada’s evolution of the art is modern, and avant-garde, while still remaining legible, but still rooted in the ancient tradition. The childlike innocence in which he approaches each project converges with the seasoned hand of a proficient artist to create a canvas of old world mastery mixed with modern aesthetic. 

For Wada, calligraphy is a medium with the power to bring joy and playfulness to others. He believes each of his characters embodies meaning. A meaning he hopes is not only conveyed to, but felt by, those observing, leaving them with a sense of relaxation, reflection, and hopefully, peace.
