BODY-ART " KOTOBUKI-MIRAI "

03-14,2012


I choosed my own daughter as the third body-art model for the project.

She was four month old then.
I made a birthday wish on her!
A long healthy joyful life "

I am so glad that I did that.

BODY ART and KYUDO

10-13,2010

BODY ART and KYUDO


For me as a body artist,
the most exciting moment is that the calligraphy
and its meaning starts to live and move as it is calligraphied on the skin.

This time I did the body art photo session with Gilles Mangeon-san.
He learns KYUDO the art of Japanese archery, and teaches also around this area.




I know the state of MUSHIN mind through Shodo calligraphy, Sado tea ceremony and Kendo practices,
but the concentration for Kyudo seems much more intense!!
And sure... you need much power!!

The text goes- * YUMI NO KOKORO *
- the spirit of archery.

And I did not realize how long this YUMI is!!
I mean it is a beautiful hand work!!
And so elegant as it bends.

I like this soft intervene between Body Art and Traditional KYUDO!- it becomes so natural yet fresh.
