Transformation of the magic of calligraphy

It began as an installation piece and soon developed into an art performance at various London galleries.
As one of the very first original Body-Art performers and calligraphers, I continuously experimented with the transformation of Japanese quality calligraphy on the naked human body and various art forms and medias.
My performance displays calligraphic craft and expression in a pure quality – being reborn and revitalized through the human skin.
Performances are often collaborations with choreography, music, art installations and projections.
I also experiment a lot with the magic power of calligraphy on the human body into photographic art forms.

Here are some images from Body-Art performances, photo sessions and projects.
