NEWSText: mariko takei

Gen Miyamura, a traditionally trained Japanese calligrapher, will present his new work, “Image Langue” at SferaExhibition in Kyoto.

“Image Langue” is an experience to READ the Abstract, a dot code, which is formed of Miyamura’s most impressive Bokusho work, an abstract form of brush calligraphy.
Directing by award-winning designer, Shun Kawakami (artless), Miyamura developed this experimental project to apply the aesthetics of Japanese calligraphy to graphic work by radical interpretation.

Tokyo extension of “Image Langue” will be also held at SferaShop Tokyo, at Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi. With the collaboration of Miyamura’s calligraphy, Kawakami will exhibit his new work “balloon as vase” at Kyoto and “2010” at Tokyo.
