Filed under: — David Giacalone @ 10:34 am


by Stephen Addiss of the University of Richmond Department of

Art and History, and used as the logo of the Haiku Society of America.

You can see more of his painting in this collection of haiga, which was

featured in Simply Haiku (March 2004). Prof. Addiss has edited or written

many books on Japanese art — find a list here.

sumi-e is the Japanese art of brush painting. Only black ink is used in sumi-e

and four brush strokes are the basis for everything painted in sumi-e.
