Hidai Nankoku, considered to be a pioneer of “avant-garde” style calligraphy-based art in Japan, spent most of his 87 years of life dedicated to art, history and writing. He was known for his willingness to push his brushstrokes into the territory of the avant-garde. Towards the end of his life, he was a prolific lecturer at the University of Oxford, teaching the art of calligraphy. Kashima Arts gallery will be featuring prominent and lesser-known works for the first month of summer. Today, his art continues to inspire other calligraphy artists, hoping to create strokes as effective and artful as his.
