​Kenjiro Kawashiro
​ 川 代 健 次 郎

1986 Born in Nara , Japan.

I am an artist who does "Shodo".

Shodo is Japanese calligraphy using a brush.

Among Shodo, the art that I do is called "KANA SHODO".

"KANA" is a character that was written a long time ago in Japan.

My Kana Shodo works use poems written by famous Japanese poets, not my own.

I express the world view of the poem with old cloth, paper, and writing style.

I hope that you can use the English translation as a hint to imagine how I express the wold of poetry.
