Profile

Sisyu, a Japanese​ ​artist officially recognized by the Japanese government and had a great privilege of showing her art works to the Emperor and the Empress in person. In her latest endeavor, she was invited to Paris, France by Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts (founded 155 years ago by Rodin) in year 2014 and 2015 as a VIP guest. There, she adorned the entrance area of the art exhibition (Art Salon) at the basement hall “Carrousel du Louvre” with 250 m² of floor space. Known for incorporating Japanese calligraphy into other art forms such as sculptures, media arts, and paintings, her latest artwork adds calligraphy etched in iron and glasses to the collection. This has evolved into a grander scale that combines sculptures, lights, and shadows. Through this work, Sisyu symbolizes the Japanese soul of “Zen” and sends the traditional work of calligraphy “Sho” into the new age with new perspectives.
