Eastern Calligraphy / Unique presentation of calligraphy art
« on: May 02, 2021, 08:16:06 AM »
A while back I found this Korean calligraphy artist , Boothyang, on You Tube and have watched several of her videos. Some of her videos are not the calligraphy that normally comes to mind. They present a different way to express calligraphy art. The size, presentation and color are impressive.  This is one of them    /  대구 달천예술창작공간 개관식 퍼포먼스 / 이화선 작가 / Calligraphy

As I have been exploring Chinese calligraphy, I have found it helpful when watching You-Tube videos to slow the viewing speed down to 25% . It allows the movement of the writing instrument to reveal more movement detail.  It has shown not only the instrument detail, but also the paper deflection as it moves across it with varying pressure. Since I have a long way to go, anything and everything helps.

I joined this forum to both explore Calligraphy and improve my handwriting. In particular Chinese Calligraphy is an interest of mine. I also am seeking to improve my handwriting so it is smoother and more legible. There is a lot of talent here and I hope to learn from it and hopefully help some others along the way.
