I am incredibly fortunate to be friends with Koichi Murai, a master of the art of Japanese Calligraphy and ink artwork. He is a soft-spoken, humble young man with an immense talent and unique style. He is living back in Japan after being in the UK for some time, and has been working tirelessly as a volunteer clearing up the most damaged parts of the country following the Tsunami/Earthquake. As a master of calligraphy, he creates stunning ink on ricepaper works, using traditional techniques and tools. He also uses these traditional crafts to create incredible works of art, many themed around Samurai and Bushido, but he can turn his hand to anything.
I wanted to introduce you to Koichi-san and some examples of his unique artwork and recommend him to you if you are looking for something personal and beautiful. His artworks are bespoke and incredibly well priced, and make great gifts for yourself or some very lucky friends and family.
Here’s a gallery of some of his works, and if you’d like to learn more about getting one of these pics or something unique, please drop me a line and I’ll be happy to put you in touch with him. You can also join his facebook page by CLICKING HERE
