Chinese Calligraphy in Yangshuo

Chinese Calligraphy has a history dated back 4000 years although nobody can really know when the written language first appeared. In Chinese culture, calligraphy is said to reveal the true aspects of a person’s character.

As with Chinese painting, Chinese brush calligraphy is a combination of disciplined practice and impromptu expression in the way it is completed in one go. Experience and practice heightens the understanding of the ink and its differing tones in relation to the brush strokes. Creative inspiration then is coupled with such training to create the proper way to visually express and reflect the content.

Chinese Calligraphy

Calligraphy is said to have both mental and physical health benefits and this theory is backed up by the longevity of many of the most famous calligraphy artists in China.
