Mission Statement of ICCPS
Mission: Sharing the passion of sumi-e &
calligraphy around the world without
distinguishing between styles & backgrounds. Under the direction of
painter, Ransui Yakata, the institute seeks
to form a community of independent sumi-e painters with often different
but infused with the same passion.
This community of artists can help show that
this unique art form can often be interpreted with sensibilities and
are (quite) different. The artists associated
with this initiative seek not only to promote their own artwork, but
art in general, which deserves its own place
among the major pictorial works of the world. More than just an art
is a way of being, thinking, and living. Our
society is a way of demonstrating these concepts.
Goal: In addition, one of the society's primary goals is to
assist in spreading the beauty and
understanding of this unique art form and culture by exhibiting this
exquisite art on an
international level. Members' artwork will be
shown all over the world.
~ Quarterly digital newsletter featuring the activities and achievements of the society branch members.~ Intermittent YouTube Exhibitions via Video.
~ Projected international art exhibitions dependent on sufficient
support from membership base.
~ International exchanges between members of the society branches for study and fellowship.
Everybody is welcome to apply to this fast growing sumi society; professionals, amateurs, art connoisseurs, etc. The
most important thing is that the person should be ready to actively participate in the society.
