Yumi Nakayama (Chinese & Japanese Calligraphy Artist)
Born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1984 (Taiwanese name: Hontin Wang).
I started dabbling in the art of calligraphy at the age of 6 and have since been developing my distinctive approach towards ancient script. After moved to Japan, I studied oil painting, sketching, contemporary art, photography and challenged many type of Arts in Japan.

In the pursuit of a true Art I found a way to my spiritual expression within the Chinese and Japanese Calligraphy. Since then the brush is rooted to my heart.
In 2009 I focused on Chinese traditional calligraphy and I studied under the Master Liu Hong in Japan. The following year I was awarded the highest title of “Professor” by the Chinese Calligraphy Academy accredited by the Shanghai University and given the calligrapher name ”Gaxing”(雅心)

While doing my calligraphy Art, I also worked on projects such as Live performance, various type of design and Contemporary Ink paintings.

I continue to produce artworks and strives to convey the essence of peace, the Zen philosophy, in my calligraphy.
