RAIRYU Project
-------------------
This is not just an art, this is a certain movement, a lifestyle, which reproduces a rich spiritual world allowing a glimpse into the fundamental principles of reality and knowledge of the person-world relationship.

While studying classic calligraphy, a new idea has started up. An idea to create work without borders between hieroglyph as a symbol and its pictorial semantics. This can help viewer to perceive the work without understanding the symbol meaning. In fact it will connect art of East and West.

Finally, the new style called “Neo-calligraphy” was created.

Viewer literally should guess the real significance of work. At the same time author arranges visual contact with viewer and demonstrates some world which puts him off from the reality and lead to contemplation, mental truth and alternative idea.

“Prism” which master puts into every work let to teleport viewer from the material world into a spiritual one.
Brush stroke, lines, multiple repeating of image, adumbration, contrast, unexpected object orientation, bizarre colouring, restructuring of themes – all this make the work one of a kind.

Neo-Calligraphy ©
-------------------------
This is an art of composing Japanese hieroglyphs-symbols in evocative, balanced and neat way what gives them an appearance which can help viewer to perceive them visually without knowing a meaning.

Neo-calligraphy is an absolutely new kind of art which was created basing on classic Japanese and Chinese calligraphy including elements of pictorial art, pop-art, street-art, graphics and graffiti. Meanwhile the centuries-old canons are maintained.

Neo-calligraphy requires the great concentration and spontaneity of performing from author. Borderless imagination and sense of humor are also inalienable.

For creating a work, first of all a hieroglyph with inherent part of extra semantics should be found.
All works were created through the world cognition and involve spiritual message of master.

Every selected hieroglyph changes its appearance without contravening the fine line, which cannot be violated and keeping visualisation of original semantics, which particular symbol contains.
