Aya Wada, an emblematic figure in the fusion of East and West, has been constantly pushing back the boundaries of calligraphy since she first took up the art at the age of seven. Her career, punctuated by awards such as the Mainichi Prize and the Kobe Cultural Encouragement Prize, bears witness to her ceaseless quest for innovation and dialogue between cultures. The Sumi et Motion exhibition embodies this approach, where each work reveals Wada 's ability to marry the influences of his Japanese and Chinese masters with those of European avant-garde pioneers such as Kandinsky and Miró.

The curious are invited on a journey through works inspired by Zen gardens and executed with exceptional mastery of black ink and rice paper (giving relief to the works) on washi paper. These creations, already acclaimed in renowned international venues, explore with finesse and depth the dialogues between tradition and modernity, between the lines of calligraphy and the spaces of painting.
