a japanese phrase, translating to a subtly profound grace, a mysterious sense of beauty triggering a deep emotional response. a feeling experienced during an early morning mountain walk, lined with cherry blossom trees. the yūgen print is part of the ikigai collection.
ikigai, inspired by the japanese phrase, a nuanced and multi-faceted concept that we can come to understand as we live and grow older — it is essentially what brings us satisfaction, a sense of fulfilment and meaning to our lives. the heart of it all is striving to find a balance between the spiritual and the practical things in day to day life, the intersection where your passion and talent intersect with what the world needs and is willing to support. ikigai — a reason for being.
