summary and opinion

As korean calligrpahy is not that different from Japanese and Chinese calligraphy, people usually get confused korean calligraphy with those two. Becase of the similarity of Hangeul and Japanese, Chineses characters. However, Korean calligraphy artist Sohn In-Sik said that Korean calligraphy is definitely different from both two, as it contains Korean’s phiolosophy of life and it reflects Korean spirit.

There was  exhibiion of Korean calligraphy and culture during February 26~March 11. Thirty six calligraphy artists, including Sohn, participate in the exhibition and their artworks range from classic to contemporary.

Mr.Sohn emphasised that heonly use blck inks and few colored inks on his artworks because it may confuse the original message which people watch through his caligraphy.

On the other hand, thesedays calligraphies are liberated from traditional and rigid caligraphy rules. Therefore, many modern calligraphers try various way to express their message on their works.

From this post, I want to share my artworks, and talk more about my calligraphy 🙂

I would like to link my own blog, and it will be nice for you guys to visit my blog.
