“I had the privilege to spend a brief time of my life in Japan. During that time, I took calligraphy classes, and it was life-changing. I still practice this art, trying to find essence of those slow, precise movements. For example, Enso, the circle symbol of enlightenment and wholeness, has always fascinated me. It encompasses everything and nothing. At that point, adding three-dimensionality to that stroke was natural for me”.
