Chinese Calligraphy and It's Expression

The word "calligraphy" is originally a Greek word meaning "beautiful writing". In China, calligraphy, one of the traditional four arts dating back to the earliest days of Chinese history, is admired and displayed in museums just as paintings are.

For the Chinese, the ancient art of the written word is not just a method of communication but also a means of expressing the dynamic forces of the natural world. By controlling the concentration of ink, the thickness and absorption of the paper, and the flexibility of the brush, the artist is free to produce an infinite variety of styles and forms. Chinese calligraphy serves the purpose of conveying 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.
