Strength of Character: The Abstract Calligraphy of Japanese Master Inoue Yuichi
March 24, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pmfree
Onishi Gallery is honored to present the masterful work of famed Japanese calligrapher Inoue Yuichi (1916-1985). Seventy years after end of World War II, Inoue continues to be hailed as one of the foremost post-war artists for his radical redefinition of traditional Japanese script. Filling large sheets with thick black strokes, splatters, and dots, Inoue’s calligraphy merges traditional character-based design and modern abstract art. His larger-than-life strokes are traces of his full body movement, inked gestures of emotion, vision, and skill.
