Art of ink and brush
Miho Araki, an artist of extraordinary talent with an expertise in Shodo brings new life to the traditional Japanese art form. Shodo is a form of artistic writing and is a Zen art, and to write with mastery, one must clear the mind and let the brush flow effortlessly.
The calligrapher has only one chance to create with a singular, fluid stroke of the brush. Miho taught herself this unique, abstract and stylish way. By not belonging to any society’s nor groups, Miho is able to create freely, and express her brush art without boundaries.
Miho offers her own messages that tap into everyday life. She likes to include a meaning that you can relate to, interpreted through the thick black strokes on large white canvases. Miho’s artworks are ready to enhance any living room wall.
The artist performs live demonstrations on stage using large panels or paper. She is also available for groups to provide smaller individualised pieces such as writing peoples names in Hiragana and other commissioned art works, all finished with her traditional red seal.
Enjoy the movement of her brush strokes as she conjures the energy of the moment.
