Chinese calligraphers

 
 
China has always been famous for its calligraphy. The hieroglyphs designed by the master enchant us with beauty and mystique. A lot of Chinese publishing houses, like the Painting and Calligraphy publishing house, issue specialized literature on calligraphy. Many artists are fellow members of calligraphic societies. Calligraphy in China is a kind of everyday life, and the Chinese come across it more often than the Europeans. That is why, to gain the fame of a prominent master it is not sufficient to be born in China, the country that didn’t forget and refuse calligraphy; it is necessary to prove that you are one of the best, the one who can depict the mood and sense with one brush stroke.
