Profile

​Kenjiro Kawashiro
​  川 代     健 次 郎

I was born in Nara Prefecture, Japan in 1986.

I am an artist who does SHODO, 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.KANA SHODO is the art of writing poetry using those characters.

 These works use poems written by famous Japanese poets, not my own.Regarding the content of the poem, I have tried my best to translate it into English, but I am sorry that it is not sufficient.

 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 world of poetry.
