Exhibition of the Future of Calligraphy
The ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE will soon hold a new exhibition titled Exhibition of the Future of Calligraphy with the participation of a group of eight young and energetic calligraphers, aiming to cultivate the next generation of artists. Mr. Yuichi Inoue is one of few modern Japanese calligraphers gaining an internationally renowned recognition for postwar Japanese modern art. He has developed calligraphy which consists of paper and India ink as the object of the expression of individuals within the context of modern art. Mr. Hisashi Yamamoto, who compiled the catalogue raisonné for Mr. Inoue and who has learned many things from his work, has pursued a new form of calligraphy in the footsteps of Mr. Inoue for twenty five years and continues his efforts to promote the world of calligraphy in art settings at home and abroad. This exhibition will showcase works of great individuality created by eight calligraphers together with the works of Mr. Yamamoto. In addition, along with the works of the eight artists, the works of the great master, Mr. Yuichi Inoue, will be also exhibited. We hope very much that you will take a look at the future of calligraphy, as imagined by the eight calligraphers who will lead the future generation.
