EXPLORING JAPANESE CULTURE: CALLIGRAPHY AND SUMI-E VIDEOS IN COLLABORATION WITH THE EMBASSY OF JAPAN IN SPAIN.
The three most well-known Japanese writing styles, Kaisho, Gyosho, and Shosho, offer a rich diversity of calligraphic expression. Kaisho is the standard style, known for its readability and consistent strokes, ideal for formal documents and printed text. Gyosho, on the other hand, is a semi-cursive style that exhibits greater fluidity and rhythm in characters, perfect for informal and personal texts. Shosho is the cursive style, characterized by its artistic expression and stylized forms that allow for a more unrestricted calligraphic creativity. In your video, by showcasing examples of these three styles with the word ‘love,’ you not only highlight the diversity of Japanese writing but also the ability to convey emotions and meanings through calligraphy. It’s a beautiful representation of how the art of writing can express love in various deep and meaningful ways
