All four are older Japanese Women artists in their 70s or more 

When the cultural organisation Japan Tide approached Leyden Gallery with the concept of an exhibition of promoting older Japanese women artists (all in their 70s) it was a perfect match as Leyden Gallery has for the last five years been building a reputation of supporting Women Artists, working with International Artists and also of being an intergenerational gallery space with a range of exciting events to match their exhibition programme.

Although all four artists come under the cultural umbrella of Japan Tide each of the artists (with the exception of week one) are distinctly and individually being promoted within their own week-long show.

From Japanese calligraphy to oil ainting, ink art, and other Japanese traditional dying and painting skills, the exceptional work of these artists express their lifelong experiences and a wealth of knowledge in many areas of involvement. From the fields of science to fashion to the engagement of both the harmony and discord of nature, the exposition of these artists at Leyden Gallery is a rare opportunity to engage with the first combined London exhibition of these mature Japanese women artists. 

Hosen Nakamura 
Born in 1944 in Tokyo, currently living and working in Shizuoka City, Nakamura engages Kana letters (Syllabic Japanese scripts) as a creatively rich art with many themes, such as peace, the environment, and love. She has presented works in various countries around the world and received numerous awards including the 8th Beijing International Art Fair Gold Award. She is a member of Mainichishodo, a Japanese calligraphy association, a judge in Japan Calligraphy Art Foundation, a regular member of All Japan Sho Federation, a visiting professor at The Calligraphy Research Institute of China, and a visiting professor at Thailand’s Silpakorn Museum. In February 2017, the book The World of Hosen NAKAMURA - Supervising Editor: Hermitage Museum Curator Aleksey Bogolyubov was published.
