About Mitsuo Aida:
Mitsuo Aida was born in Ashikaga-shi, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan in 1924. He was attracted to brush-and-ink calligraphy and tanka poetry in his pre-World War II system middle-school days. Later, he established his original style based on My Words My Writing producing a great number of artworks. In 1984, his works became widely renowned after his book Ningen Damono(Because I'm human) was published. He passed away at the age of 67, in 1991. In 1996, the Mitsuo Aida Museum opened in the Ginza area of Tokyo, and in 2003, it was moved to its current location at the Tokyo International Forum.
