Handwriting “Happy Birthday”
”I want to be able to hand write ”Happy Birthday” neatly.” Because we use text and email messages every day, there is a desire to hand write special messages to convey our true feelings. It makes you happy to be on the receiving end. I think everybody relates to this.
Teaching Calligraphy at Harvard University
After Yahagi graduated college, she studied Chinese characters under Teshima Yukei and Japanese kana characters under Machi Shunso. After being awarded at the Fine Arts Exhibition, she held her first solo exhibition in 1974. After this, she traveled around Japan, then around the globe, with her exhibition. Her soft gentle expressive calligraphy has attracted people around the world. For 3 years from 1989, she worked as an assistant professor at Harvard University in the Oriental Art History Department. Many of her students first came out of curiosity for oriental art, then start to become engrossed with calligraphy.
Making it legible to express sensation
We ask Yahagi to write the word, ”笑” (laughter).
