Then, why did I set up an e-commerce site that sells "Japanese calligraphy artwork"?

Have you ever bought a "Japanese calligraphy " artwork? Have you ever wanted to decorate it?


Most people will probably say', 'No.'

Then, why did I set up an e-commerce site that sells "Japanese calligraphy artwork"?

The reason comes from my own experience that When I wanted to decorate my room with Japanese calligraphy artwork, I couldn't find a site selling it.

So why did I want to decorate "calligraphy" rather than "painting" or "photograph"?

I wasn't really interested in calligraphy, but seven to eight years ago, I was watching a movie and was shocked by the title of the movie written in the calligraphy that came out at the end., so I paused for a while and watched it.

When I looked into it, I found that it was written by a calligrapher named Koji Kakinuma.

That was the first reason I wanted a “calligraphy” that would shake my heart.

From there, I searched the Internet about Mr. Kakinuma, From there, I searched online about Mr. Suganuma, but although I had his information, I didn't know if I could buy the work, and I didn't know the price at all.

I searched for other artists and works, but there were few work options that I could buy.

So I gave up buying calligraphy and started to learn calligraphy with a simple idea that I could draw something that I could decorate myself. I learned about 5 years, but I realized that it would take a long time to write a work that I wanted to decorate in lessons about once a week.

At that time, I happened to know that there was a solo exhibition of Mr. Kakinuma, and when I visited, I was immediately fascinated by the charm of the work, and I couldn't help wanting it.

Most of the works were not easily within reach for a typical salaried worker, but there were some things that could be bought by putting in a bonus, so after worrying about the coffee shop for hours, I took the plunge and bought it (the work called "Sky-SORA" on the right side of the photo above. By the way, " 黒棘 The name of the shop was also volatilized by Mr. Kakinuma.)

Was it okay to buy it drastically?

Needless to say, we are currently launching such an EC site, but the answer is YES.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that "buying a calligraphy" changed my life for me.

I felt that much charm in the Japanese calligraphy artwork.

I think that there are a lot of people who think that the calligraphy does not fit in the Western-style room. Of course, I think it depends on the style, but there is no sense of discomfort at all if it is a work of acrylic or wooden panels to make the picture frame match the interior of the room.

On the other hand, the hanging scroll-KAKEJIKU is exotic and interesting. I think it's new to have Japanese accents. 

If you have a Japanese-style room, the air in the room changes just by having a hanging scroll. The hanging scroll of antique art may be good, but the works of contemporary artists are more recommended because they match the contemporary atmosphere.

Also, as shown in the photo below, the hanging scroll of the ink painting fits well with the wall of the Western-style room.



Everyone who had been supposed to decorate the wall with "painting" or "photographs" until now, why not consider "Japanese calligraphy" and "Simi ink painting" in the future?
