Calligraphy

Prof. Ouyang Zhongshan, Calligrapher and Teacher

Romanian Embassy

Chinese ideography, developed from pictography, offers artists immense scope for creating works of art with profound philosophical meaning. The way in which a calligrapher conducts a brush over the paper – flowing now with big, bold strokes, now with delicate, carefully drawn lines – demonstrates a kind of skill that can only be attained after years of practice, a skill which also allows the artist to express a state of mind, an attitude, and even emotions like love, sorrow or hope. Three well-known Chinese calligraphers will demonstrate their skill, will introduce us to their art and help us understand its development.
