Calligraphy and Bamboo Art

Dou Kanji - Way

Calligraphy is a special refined type of art which expresses not only the meaning of what is written, but also the state of mind. It is polished to perfection, allowing no corrections and unnecessary details...

It is the momental expression of Zen harmony of the author who took the brush...


You can order a personal bamboo painting or a calligraphy painting with characters of your choise.

The price depends on the amount of characters, colors (bamboo can be painted in color), etc.

In a silent shadowy corner of the garden there was green bamboo - the embodiment of zeal for life and the ability to quicken its flow, soaring straight up to the Sun, to splendid blossoming and death. With dignity, like a samurai, staying firm and straight, as if being predetermined to become a spear...

Listening to the rustle of bamboo, watching its quick growth have always magically helped to restore strength and heal wounds.

We use ink and rice paper, but we also can use thicker paper. Non-rice paper may be good for kanji, but it does not always give those nice blurs that look good in bamboo paintings.

We do not make copies of our bamboo and calligraphy paintings, meaning each painting is done only once.





I will not get lost...
The North Star is shining in the darkness...
The road to Valhalla, straight like a sword, is always in front of me!
