This exhibition is one of the most interesting and impressive things to see in Tokyo National Museum in Ueno. The exhibited sculptures are superb, some of them are huge, others are smaller. Museum rotates items on the display every 3 months, so you can admire various masterpieces. Some of the sculptures can be photographed, so do not forget to bring your camera with you. The room with the statues has amazing energy, it is very peaceful and soothing. I have added my calligraphy to the below photo, written in cursive script, it reads 平穏, i.e. tranquility (heion).

I have been cooperating with the Japanese artist, Snow Forest, for a few years now, and this year we decided to take on another project. Some of you know Snow Forest from soap carving art, but she is also a certified aroma therapist. Snow is now preparing new line of aroma oils for her 6 weeks long exibition in an art gallery in Nagoya, Japan. If anyone is interested in the exhibition details please contact Snow Forest directly at email@example.com.
My part in the project is probably easy to guess, especially once you had a look at the photo below. I am desinging labels in Japanese calligraphy, and take photographs of ready-made oils. Each of the oils is unique, and all of them are hand-made from start to finish.
Label on the photo: 舞香 - dancing fragrance
未来への古典 is a calligraphy exhibition celebrating 50 years of passing the knowledge of Japanese and Chinese calligraphy to his disciples, by Master Kajita Esshu (梶田越舟先生), who happens to be my calligraphy teacher for past 12 years.
My teacher is not a person who enjoys exposure, publicity and all those things that people crave in modern times. He simply loves to teach, and loves calligraphy art. Having said that, this exhibition is a rare occasion to see his works, or meet him in person, and also to see the works of his selected students, during the Ginza exhibition in Tokyo. I will write another article with a more detailed update on possible lectures or calligraphy art demonstration during this exhibition.
My humble work will also be displayed there.
Hope to see you all in Ginza!

If you are in Tokyo, between January 22nd and March 3rd 2013, I highly recommend the calligraphy exhibition of the calligraphy sage Wang Xizhi. The National Museum of Tokyo in Ueno, will be displaying copies (none of the original Wang Xizhi works survived) of his works, which were written by most distinguished calligraphers of the Tang dynasty, on the order of the emperor Taizong, who dearly cherished Xizhi's works. This is THE event, possibly the most significant calligraphy even in Japan in past 10 years. Those calligraphy works are among the most valued pieces of ancient Chinese literature.
