Art is said to heal, but it does so in our spirit. For viruses, we need much more.
As we believe that if everybody #stayshome helps, here comes our contribution to encourage you to do so:
As many people ask us about what our influences are, we’ll share with you what and who inspire us: writers, designers, painters, books, cinematographers… We hope this triggers your curiosity to know more and do some research, read a new book or watch/”re-watch” a film or learn something new. If you want to share anything with the rest, please feel free to add your comments.
Please, #staysafe, #stayathome, reduce your stress and increase your curiosity. Let curiosity guide you in these difficult times.
“To create an outstanding piece of calligraphy, one must inject one’s mind and soul into the work and write with one’s heart.”
Shodo (書道-the path/way 道 of writing 書) does not simply refer to the method or technique of writing individual words or characters but to the expressions of one’s passions, personality, interests, moral, character, physique, charisma, style, emotions and thoughts through calligraphy.
It’s impossible to explain on an Intragram post what Shodo implies, but we hope to stimulate your curiosity to learn more about it. To us, shodo, the path of writing 書道 helped us to find our “shashindo” 写真道. Our path of photography.
We’ll show you 3 very special “shodokas”. We met the first two seven years ago and it changed our lives. It’s difficult to find their works on the internet, so we are giving you a scoop!
