Fukijin / Wind-joy-man
[Fuboku Sho-ka / Japanese calligrapher]
Fukijin was born in 1961 and is based in Maebashi city, Gumma, Japan.
He has grown up under the benevolent watch of Amaterasu/the Sun. Sumi/Japanese black ink and brushes were always at his side. He liked playing and writing with them from his childhood. It seems like fate.
In his youth, he had wild experience working in a small island in Indonesia. All memories in a beautiful great mother nature and also native’s powerful energy and their warmth and affliction are unforgettable.
Before flying back to Japan, he visited Italy. The region’s rich culture and history magnetized him deeply.
After his returning home, he decided to hit the road again. He spent easy days visiting ancient cities across the entire country from north Hokkaido to south Okinawa with his Harley-Davidson. He enjoyed his freedom in travel where the wind blew and wrote Japanese calligraphy.
In December 2007, he abandoned the life as an employee and started his career as an independent professional Sho-ka/Japanese calligrapher.
His works are warm, expressive and being alive. More than 900 works have been handed over to customers since then.
To deliver the energy of words to people who need courage, hope and serenity is his life’s work. His gentle breeze never stops.
He hopes to meet all of you at his exhibitions.
