The charms of sumi-eÂ (ink paiting) lie in the mysterious harmony between charcoal and water, the relation between paper and ink, and the beauty of ink gradation. Japanese-Canadian sumi-e artist, Hiroshi Yamamoto,Â graduated from Kyoto Industrial Design Institute and Kyoto Japanese Art School.Â Â Mr. YamamotoÂ studied traditional arts and history includingÂ sumi-e andÂ Nihonga style painting. He alsoÂ practicedÂ under Mr. Rokuro Yamamoto, a specialist in Nihonga, and is deeply influenced by the works of Tohaku Hasegawa, a 16th century artist. He has had over 20 individual exhibitions in both Japan and Canada. He will give you a special workshop to create your own sumi-e work.Â To reserve your spot, please click on the PayPal button below.
