Taisan

Taisan is very famous Japanese style painter. He is Painter, Illustrator and Calligraphy Master and Artist based in NYC.

Taisan started his career in 2000 in Tokyo. After many exhibitions in galleries throughout Japan, his unique art became a phenomenon.

In 2011, after the great earthquake and tsunami that devastated the Tohoku region of Japan, the ministry of defense wanted to thank the american military for their help during this crisis. They asked master Taisan to perform a live calligraphy in front of the officals. The word chosen by Taisan was the word "Gratitude".
