Learn Shodo – Japanese Calligraphy
SHODO is one of the oldest and most profound traditional art forms in Japan, developed and appreciated since the 5th century.
The world of calligraphy has its long rich history which went through many possible calligraphic styles and expressions during its over 3000 years existence.
SHODO is not only a highly regarded art form in Japan, it is both a skill and an aesthetic.
The depth of beauty in SHODO is the result of diverse techniques being accompanied with a flow of brush and ink, essentially with an inner silence/stillness and spiritual concentration.
“SHODO” is a Japanese word which is often translated and described as
“the way of artistic hand writing or beautiful writing”.
Another meaning is “the art of traditional Japanese calligraphy”.
It is written with 2 Kanji characters.
SHO 書: to write, writing
DO 道 : the path, the way or the TAO
