HAIGA is a style of Japanese painting that incorporates the aesthetics of HAIKAI. Haiga are typically painted by HAIJIN poets, and often accompanied by a HAIKU poem. Like the poetic form it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. Stephen Addiss points out that "since they are both created with the same brush and ink, adding an image to a haiku poem was ... a natural activity.
