Kayoh Yoshino was born in Kumamoto Prefecture in 1966, and lives there today.

She started calligraphy from an early age, and at the age of 24 met and studied with a teacher of calligraphy. At 28 she earned the calligraphy teacher’s certification from the Japan Calligraphy Education Society. Nowadays, she continues to teach students from children to adults, and is in her 25th year of teaching calligraphy.

Kayoh’s six-meter avant-garde work “Dragon,” first unveiled nine years ago, was more recently exhibited at “Art Shopping 2018” at Le Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, and at ADIHEX 2019 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and also in 2019, at a temple in Minamata City, Japan.

She continues to explore the appeal of calligraphy to the world, aiming to create calligraphy that everyone would want to display, making widely known a black and white world of avant-garde calligraphy, by trying out fusions with various fields such as Kumamoto Prefectural traditional crafts, shibu uchiwa fans (traditional paper fans varnished with persimmon juice), affixing foil to tea ceremony room hanging scrolls, and painting calligraphy with acrylic paint over charcoal and dark ink.
