Shodoka SAORI

I am Saori, a profesional shodo artist.
Shodoka is the Japanese word for calligrapher. As a performer, I call myself "Shodoka Saori".
I aspire to show the beauty of Japanese calligraphy to people around the world.

Although other calligraphers mainly draw Chinese characters,called "KANJI", I often use "HIRAGANA," which is of Japanese origin.
This is because hiragana can express the delicacy of calligraphy.

Sometimes,I powerfully draw a kanji on the wall with a huge brush, and sometimes I write it on a small piece of paper with small brushes.

I would be very happy to have the opportunity to show you my performance.
