【Profile of Mouri Suzuk】
He is hosting « Hakujitsukyou » , a studio and a practice room for calligraphy at Kagurazaka in Tokyo.
He believes in « 心正則筆正 », which means that if you are feeling right about yourself, your calligraphy will show it. In other words, he is respecting the way you feel, not only the way you use the brush. He also established a brand called « sillage ». Sillage means the wake and the lingering scent. So he is designing the atmosphere and the scent based on his belief that we can seize some things because they are not here in front of us, which is what he learned through the calligraphy.
