Music with my heart
Souvenir de voyage
Sound and rush hour in Sukhumvit
Kyudo, which literally means The Way of the Bow, is considered by many to be the purest of all the martial ways. In the past, the Japanese bow was used for hunting, war, court ceremonies, games, and contests of skill. The original word for Japanese archery was kyujutsu (bow technique) which encompassed the skills and techniques of the warrior archer. Some of the ancient schools, known as ryu, survive today, along with the ancient ceremonies and games, but the days where the Japanese bow was used as a weapon are long past. Modern kyudo is practiced primarily as a method of physical, moral, and spiritual development.

Pierre Bellemare Artist Bio
Pierre Bellemare holds a background in art and a bachelor’s degree in graphic communications.
As a computer graphics designer, he founded the agency Bellemare Graphic Design. He has realized several national and international assignments, some of which were published in over 65 countries.
As a painter, he has exhibited his work in various galleries in Canada and the United States. He also participated in group exhibitions in both Canada and Europe.
Since he started devoting himself fully to his art, travel and music have become Pierre Bellemare’s greatest sources of inspiration. The cultures of different countries he visited in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, have inspired vibrant colors that he uses with great pleasure as integral elements of his paintings.
His paintings have found a home in private and corporate collections in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
Pierre Bellemare’s fundamental inspiration is characterized by energy, rhythm and action, in relation to different cultural and musical mosaics. Through the use of color, light, texture and elements of calligraphy, musical creations unfold in large format.
For the artist, color holds a vibration akin to music. This vibration invites us to see a world expressed through the power of abstraction, rather than pictures or words.
This freedom of gesture, in full awareness of the present moment, relies on a foundation that springs from an amalgam of knowledge and artistic spontaneity.
For the creator, design, balance and structure are essential to deeply and powerfully express a painting in all its uniqueness.
«Beyond the joy of painting, the whole beauty of abstract art for me is the fact that it is boundless. Each person, regardless of their culture or background, can see themselves in it and experience their own emotions».
