After getting off the escalator to the lounge, guests are greeted by a calligraphic work by Japanís celebrated calligrapher, Shishu.
Calligraphy art by Sisyu
Going up to the lounge by escalator, calligraphic art by Ms. Sisyu, a famous Japanese calligraphy artist, welcomes you.
Sisyu (Calligraphic artist)
A Japanese calligraphic artist officially recognized by the Japanese government. Born in Japan, she dedicated herself to creation ever since she started "Sho" (calligraphy)at the age of six. Moved to Tokyo and started her professional career as a calligrapher. Her creations inherit the traditional "Sho" and express the transition from the past to a new age of "Sho" with a new perspective. Using calligraphy, Sisyu has established herself as an artist in Japanese calligraphy and she has expanded this by incorporating them into other art forms such as sculptures, media arts, and paintings. This comes in forms of etched iron calligraphy, and her latest artwork adds calligraphy etched in glasses to the collection. This has evolved into a grander scale that combines sculptures, lights, and shadows. Through this work, Sisyu symbolizes the Japanese soul of "Zen" and is consistently projecting this art form to the world.
Her latest endeavor involved being invited by Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts (founded 155 years ago by Rodin)in year 2014 and 2015 as a VIP guest where she adorned the entrance area of the art exhibition (Art Salon)at the basement hall "Carrousel du Louvre" with 250m² of floor space.
