We are pleased to announce that the Adachi Shouhei Exhibition is now open this week. Mr. Adachi explores "something that cannot be captured by things like color and shape" based on the sense he obtained through classical calligraphy. The shades of ink that spread endlessly might be able to capture even the important "sounds". With that in mind, this exhibition features about 20 works that express the shadow of sound in ink.
