Chinese Calligraphy
In China, calligraphy has a distinguished position in the field of traditional art. It is not only a means of communication, but also a means of expressing a person's inner world in an aesthetic sense. It is one of the most beautiful forms of writing in the world. It originated in China and has been practiced for thousands of years. The emphasis on the dynamics of motion as the brush meets the surface is what separates calligraphy from other forms of lettering.

 

 

What is Chinese Calligraphy about?

To practice calligraphy requires the basic tools of 'four treasures of study' (writing brush, ink stick, paper, and ink slab) as well as much concentration on guiding the soft writing brush charged with fluid ink, and writing on the paper where the ink will diffuse quickly. Once the brush movement hesitates, a black mark is created, so speed, strength and agility are the essence of fine artwork. When writing, many calligraphers will forget all worries and even themselves, combining all thoughts in the beauty of their art. Thus it can be compared with Qigong, which also can mould and improve a person's temper and promote well-being.
