The art of haiga

Haiga, the art of combining imagery and words, was a well-established Japanese tradition before it became especially popular in 17th-19th century Japan. During this time (Edo Period) a number of influential haiku masters / painters merged the two art forms. The genre reflects different styles and approaches, from simple sketches to elaborate artwork depending on the artist’s preference and skill.

Contemporary haiga may use a variety of visual media including photography and digital imagery.

We are looking for a selection of summer inspired haiga for the next issue of Kigo: Seasonal Words. The following are some suggested images taken from Kyoto Gardens in London’s Holland Park. If you have a haiku to go with either image then send it through! Alternatively, you are welcome to submit your own haiga (image complete with haiku whether by a single artist or collaboration). For full details please see the guidelines on the submissions page. To read issue 1 click here.

The deadline for the summer issue is 13 June 2014.
