Kanjiro Kawai
(1 of 5 pages)


Spiritual essayist

Kawai's output is tremendous. Kawai filled his spirit and works with tariki. The Buddhist term tariki refers to a reliance on grace. Kawai was full of personality and warmth. It comes through in all of his work. Kawai refused all official positions and honours including that of Living National Treasure. He never lost touch with common folk and greatly respected farmers.  







When you become so absorbed in your work that beauty flows naturally then your work truly becomes a work of art.
