Kyoko Takane

Kyoko Takane started learning calligraphy even before she was five.

Her mother is a traditional calligrapher who writes Japanese classic poems. Soon after acquiring a degree in Calligraphy from Tokyo Gakugei University, shestarted teaching calligraphy at institutions in Japan and also to individuals.

It takes Kyokoonly a moment to produce a character once she faces a blank sheet of paper. However, the process of grinding sumi is time-consuming and may take up to one or even two days. 

Kyoko writes contemporary poetry as well as Chinese poetry. She selectspoems and words that match her calligraphy style. This creates a greatharmony in the expression of words in calligraphy. The artist believes thatshe borrows words that already exist in order to make calligraphy; withoutwords she cannot face her creation. 

The artist also focuses on the light and shades of sumi. Kyoko enjoys the process of sumi bleeding on paper, which occurs especially when she uses thin black ink.Sumibleeding together withblurring, distinguishes Japanese calligraphy and makes it unique and outstanding.
