Aki Hoshihara is a Japan-born, Los Angeles based artist with a background in traditional Japanese calligraphy. She studied calligraphy from the age of 5 until 17 under masters, Masamichi Ueno and Ippan Ueno in Kagoshima Japan as a form of martial arts. Her work is best known for the fusion of black Sumi-ink and bright chromatic palette of watercolors and other mixed media. The fluid and sensual brushstrokes – inspired by the beauty and the energy flow of humans and nature - take us to a moment of contemplation and harmony. Sumi ink is used as a conduit to express energy flow with layers of other mediums to draw us into a meditative state and to allow us to reflect on our own consciousness.
Aki dedicates her work for healing the subconscious mind and inviting infinite potential within us. She practices healing service in LA. Click here for details about her intuitive healing work with Reiki and hypnotherapy.
