Shozo Sato is a master of Zen arts, including Ikebana, Japanese Tea Ceremony and Sumi-e (black ink painting). He conducts workshops on Ikebana and Sumi-e throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe and is the author of numerous books including Tea Ceremony, Ikebana and The Art of Sumi-e. He was the founding director of Japan House at the University of Illinois, where he is Professor Emeritus and continues to teach Japanese arts.
