Meet the Artist

Kuniharu Shimizu

Tenri, Nara, Japan

I am a haiga (haiku+artwork) artist. I have done close to 2000 haiga working with haiku poets throughout the world. Poets submit haiku to me, and I do the artwork that suits to the haiku.
Often times, I use Pentel brush pen to do drawing. The fine and elastic hair of the pen enables me to draw lines and shapes that are essential to haiga art.
