The school Sosekido (素石堂) was formed by my sensei, Unkotsu Komine (小峰雲骨) many years ago. I was 13 years old when I first met him, and it was the beginning of my long-time calligraphy path.

Exhibition -Playful-

Sosekido calligraphy exhibition, Playful was at Atelier für Photographie in May 2023. I have decided this theme because of the situation we have been in the last few years. Pandemic and the war, we are tired of hearing the sad news everyday. Although we can’t change the situation, we can change our mind. Since when we forgot to play? We have to deal with lots of realities but it doesn’t mean we must stop playing. When was the last time you played without any purpose? Let’s be playful. 

Berlin based band, Mitsune came to play for us. This was really an honour for me. Great performance added nice summerly and matsuri (festival) feelings. Thank you so much, Mitsune!
