Clarity of thought and simplicity of art are what I am looking for in traditional Haiga. Everyday occurrences, as well as universal truths can be expressed in pieces that make wise use of space and form. Traditional techniques such as moku hanga (Japanese woodblock printmaking), sumi-e, brush-and-ink painting or other hand-painted art must be employed. The image and haiku must be blended artistically so that together the two are more enhanced than they would be if they stood alone.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please read the Submissions page for precise haiga guidelines.
