Meisui Hatano

Meisui Hatano

Born 1961 (Aichi, Japan) lives and works in Kasugai-city, Aichi, Japan.

Meisui Hatano came up with a hieroglyph of  a word “楽 (joy)” in her mind at her apartment in New York in January 2015. Since then she has been drawing New York’s scenery using the motif of that hieroglyph word. Now a days the word “楽” appears on every work she does.
She regards Sho (書, calligraphy) as a contemporary art called “SumiArt” that destroys image of classic calligraphy.
