Toko Shinoda is a Japanese artist who merges the traditions of sumi painting and calligraphy with modern abstract expression. She has the honor of having been declared a Japanese National Treasure. Demonstrating simplicity and poise in her creations, Toko Shinoda has an incredible flair that is unique and inimitable. With Chinese and Japanese characters commonly imbued in her artworks, her work with calligraphy marked the beginning of the artist’s fascination with sumi. Using very minimal colors and sumi as her primary medium, Toko creates bold brushworks which produce exquisite art pieces. At the grand age of 102 she is still painting daily!
