From the age of 6 years old, Aoi Seiren started studying under Hiroyuki Nakajima, focusing on the artistic aspect of Japanese calligraphy. From 2013 and onwards, she has become an independent calligrapher artist, providing growth and a mysterious strength to particular Japanese words and the language itself. Just with a brush, Aoi depicts words and phrases with her feelings and thoughts, adding unique flavors and expressions as calligraphy art. Calligraphy art invokes the traditional concept of calligraphy, expressing oneself while diligently using its tools, techniques, and creative painting style. As she masters the use of various colourful inks, Aoi’s work, known as “Shodou” is reaching a worldwide audience sharing one of Japan’s oldest cultural arts. While she expands outside of Japan and within, Aoi actively continues to perform both collaboratively with other various artists, and independently.
