What's Kana
Preface
A contemporary artist and also a master of Japanese calligraphy (Kana Shodo). Born in Canada, grew up in the U.S. and Japan, since 2007 in Berlin, and since 2017 in London. With her globe-trotting background she challenges to cross the borders between many different things like “Countries, Religions, Languages, Cultures, etc”. She also tries to revive ancient traditional Japanese syllabary, Kana characters in modern times with her own style of art free from the preconceived ideas of the Japanese traditions.
