Kakushou Kametani is a calligrapher in Japan. He has studied calligraphy since he was 6 years old. He has acquired a good reputation even overseas nowadays.
Katsunobu Kawahito, a Japanese-style painter, is famous for painting with lively lines.
This work is a collaboration between Kakushou Kametani and Katsunobu Kawahito. It depicts cherry trees in full blossom near a house. We can enjoy the genial spring day portrayed in the picture.
In Japan, “gasan” refers to a poem written in a blank space, usually on the upper part of a painting. Seeing this painting (“ga”) of Katsunobu Kawahito, Kakushou Kametani wrote the poem (“san”) on it. (This poem itself was written by Bashou MATSUO). We can notice that it seems like they were enjoying a genial spring day together.
