Exhibition Profile

Yu-ichi Inoue (1916-1985) was an outstanding Japanese calligrapher in the latter half of the 20th century, reputed as one of the representatives of avant-garde art in post-war Japan. He devoted his whole life to calligraphy, who has been working around the clock and would rather be the “ghost of calligraphy” as he claimed. He pioneered exceedingly wide range of expression and broke a new ground in avant-garde calligraphy.

 

His works challenged the general understanding of traditional calligraphy. He went further beyond writing itself, and towards “the act of writing” - an approach coinciding with the great abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock. However, his works are not just about various techniques and methods, but stunningly present a unique expression of great oriental beauty. He produced an enormous influence not only on Western art, but also on Chinese calligraphy and even contemporary art around the world.

 

This exhibition focuses on 112 representative works by Yu-ichi Inoue that stand out throughout his creative career. The works are classified according to different calligraphic styles and different periods, and designed to bring the most authentic Yu-ichi Inoue to the audience for a deeper understanding of his spiritual and artistic world. This is by far the largest exhibition of Yu-ichi Inoue in China, with extremely wide academic significance and high cultural value.
