Pen-Calligraphy Art – “Tori(Bird)” – an Amazing Work by Ms. Maria


Hello! I’m Yonosuke, a writer of KARAKURIJAPAN!
Today, I’ll introduce you a work of calligraphy by a pen!

 Ms. Maria, who is familiar to KARAKURIJAPAN is going to write it !


 The Bird Written by Ms. Maria, a Pen-Calligrapher




What Ms. Maria is going to write this time is “tori” which means bird in English.

Although it is just a single letter of kanji(Chinese characters), it is difficult to keep the balance because there are a lot of strokes, and four dots.

Then, how did Ms. Maria write “tori” this time!?

Let’s start with the explanation by Ms. Maria herself.


 The Explanation by Ms. Maria herself.


Today, I’ll write “tori(bird)”.
It is called bird in English.

With the image of a bird flapping its wings,

I wrote it so that white became more showy than black.
By the way, my favorite bird is a grilled chicken.


She said that she wrote it so that the white became more showy than black. It is a revolutionary idea!

Then, I’ll introduce you the way Ms. Maria write “tori”.
How did the work become to look like!?

By the way, she said her favorite bird is grilled chicken. It’s food, though… She is charming to say such a kidding!

Now Ms. Maria’s “tori” has been completed! How beautiful it is!

As the explanation by Ms. Maria, it seems that white is more shown than black.
That makes the word of “tori” more vivid.

It has the image of a bird flapping dynamically. It seems as if the work had a life.

At this picture, it is more obvious that white is so shown off. The word of “TORI” written with alphabets also makes the work more artistic.

 The work this time is wonderful as usual, Ms. Maria! Thank you so much!


You can try pen-calligraphy just with paper and a brush pen. It is more casual to write than normal calligraphy.


Also, you can see other works by Ms. Maria at KARAKURIJAPAN.
