Chinese calligraphy celebrates more than a three-thousand-year history and has been regarded as both high art and the most popular applied art in China and in other Eastern Asian countries.

“Calligraphy is sheer life experienced through energy in motion that is registered as traces on silk or paper, with time and rhythm in shifting space its main ingredients.” Stanley-Baker
