Let’s get started!

Let’s begin with basic lines.
In order to write “Harai”, write a line, stop gently, reduce your power and move your brush to the side.

Chifumi Niimi Profile

新見知ふみ 写真

Born on July 7th. From childhood, I studied calligraphy, enjoying myself, sitting next to my mother who was a calligrapher. Studied calligraphy in FUDAN University in Shanghai in 1989, and in Peking University in 1990. After having worked for an airplane company, I have been in charge of Calligraphy teacher, a Chinese conversation teacher, and Chinese tea teacher at NHK Cultural Center. Presently in Kyoto, I am the leader of Niimi Calligraphy School, being in search in a new style of calligraphy, also paying attention to what we call Design Calligraphy.
