wanna make traditional Japanese calligraphy pop art. / 書道をポップアートにしたい

I’m writing ancient Chinese characters(that are called “pictograph”). They were created about 3000 or more years ago, carved into metal, bones and tortoise carapaces.

What I’m writing in my pieces is the characters carved into metal such as bronze-ware that were used for festivals at the time.
These documents carved into metal are formal, like a contract or the official record of a dynasty etc. They aren’t deciphered completely yet.

They are kind of primitive, magical and powerful, I was fascinated by them at the first sight.
My pieces are made by putting all of these ancient characters into a form like someone’s face and other things, similar to pointillism.
What I want to do the most is making Chinese characters 'pop art'.
I hope my pieces will intrigue you.
Thank you for your reading.

作品に書いている漢字は3000年以上前の中国古代文字です。現在の漢字の元になった文字です。これらは青銅器や骨、亀の甲羅などに彫られて残っているものです。殷〜周時代に使われていました。
私は殷後期から周時代の青銅器に多く残されている、「金文」という種類の象形文字を中心に書いています。この時代の青銅器は主に祭祀に使われたもので、文章の内容としては契約書のようなものや、王朝の記録といった公式文書の類です。まだ全て解明されていません。

象形文字はとても原始的で、神秘的で、私はその文字の一つ一つの力強さに出会った時からずっと魅了されています。私の作品は文字で何か形を作るというもので、点描画に近いかもしれません。
書道、漢字をポップアートにしたいと思い、作品を作っています。
文字の面白さを感じていただけたら幸いです。
