Pia Moberg became interested in Japanese calligraphy when she began studying Japanese in the late 1980s at the University of Gothenburg. She was fascinated by the irreversibility of the art form, never being able to erase or remake. Since 1997, Pia has been a direct student of Professor and Calligraphy Master Taisho Akahira, who lives in Tokyo. Today, Pia has shodan (first degree black belt) in calligraphy. In addition to the traditional calligraphy, she has designed a number of book covers with illustrations inspired by calligraphy brushwork.
In September 2021, Pia has her first exhibition, which includes both traditional works as well as more innovative collaborations with artists who work with ink drawings, watercolor, wood and metal.
