What is Design Shodo

Amusement for Beauty

“Playful Spirit” is one of the artistic principles running through The Society of Japanese Calligraphy. This means mental flexibility. With this principle in mind, calligraphers make their own unique calligraphic expression by flexibly using a calligraphic brush and ink (sumi)* but being based on the basics (saho)*of Shodo. The calligraphers pursue the beauty of their calligraphic expression as if they were painting pictures with their own free ideas and techniques.

Universe of Equilibrium

The principle of “Equilibrium” mentioned here doesn’t mean [the balance of symmetrical powers]. It means [the flexibility (yawaraka)* needed for good balancing between opposite items]. “Equilibrium” should allow the well-balanced coexistence of a pair of quite different items, just like the moon and the sun, the west and the east. The principle of “Equilibrium” represents that a well-balanced universe shall be expressed on a piece of paper by a calligrapher.

Sophistication

“Sophistication”, called iki in Japanese, stands for wind-like spirit which moves freely, graciously and flexibly. “Sophistication” also carries [gracious detachment from desires (akirame)]* and/or [charming atmosphere (iroke) ]*. “Sophistication” plays a core part of what it makes Japanese culture cool and attractive.
The Society of Japanese Calligraphy defines the spirit of “Sophistication” as [the character out of the frame of the personality]. In other words, the spirit of “Sophistication” exists beyond the borders of what makes us earthy.
