CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY

Chinese Calligraphy is one of the highest forms of Chinese art. Calligraphy literally means “good writing”. However, Chinese calligraphy cannot be defined as just “writing” Chinese characters or merely being defined as a way of to make Chinese characters look “more beautiful”.

The most important aspect of Chinese Calligraphy is that it is an emotional form of art, as it carries the thoughts and feelings of the artist. Calligraphy has been an important feature of the Chinese culture for the past 4000 years. In order to profession in Chinese Calligraphy, one must learn the origins of Chinese language and characters and how they were originally written.

 

 Chinese Calligraphy, also identified as brush calligraphy, which is one of the Four Arts of the Chinese Scholar. There are: stringed musical instrument (Qin 琴), strategic board game (Qi 棋), calligraphy (shu 書) and painting (hua畫).

 Chinese calligraphy originated from the Chinese way of writing characters, which on its turn originate from painting. From the very beginning, people had a strong appreciation for Chinese characters. Progressively this perception evolved, and the people started to find the characters more than just “good looking”. That was the starting of calligraphy and the invention of the brush resulted in calligraphy was acknowledged as a form of art.

 Chinese calligraphy not only serves as the intention transmission of thought but also shows the 'abstract' beauty of the line. Rhythm, line, and structure are more perfectly embodied in calligraphy than in painting or sculpture. Some rules need to be strictly followed in Chinese Calligraphy. It is because each and every Chinese character is unique on it own and it was built up in its own square with variety of structure and composition.

       

Each Chinese character has a exact number of strokes and appointed positions for them in relation to the whole. No stroke may be added or deleted for decorative effect. Any alteration may cause the character to become meaningless or become another character with totally different meaning.

For instance (shu 書) and painting (hua 畫) looks very similar but there are two extra stroke in the “hua”. Another important point to take note is that the pattern of the character should have a living movement, look lively and full of emotion of the writer.
