Bakuzan Sakaki (1926-2010) began pursuing calligraphy after World War II, entering his work in various prestigious calligraphy contests in Japan. Through intense research and study of Chinese and Japanese calligraphy history, he developed his own unique theory of aesthetics.

His ground-breaking approach in expressing kanji such as “土” (tsuchi, soil), “女” (onna, woman) and “樹” (ki, wood), combined with his affable personality and frequent TV appearances, made him immensely popular in Japan.
