In both Chinese and Japanese cultures, the art of calligraphy is considered an endeavor equal to the art of brush painting. In addition to artistic expression, the practice of calligraphy is thought to bring good health and increase longevity by exercising the spirit, the mind and the body all at once.
The most effective calligraphic artists strive to perfect a symbiosis of form and meaning to express the complete spirit of the characters they depict. Whether paired with painting or pursued alone, learning to create calligraphy is fundamental to those interested in Asian Art forms.
