With two thousands years of history, calligraphy writing played an important role in the spread of learning, culture and religion. In the current world, calligraphy writing has become a form of art that carries expressive interpretation of words, phrases and stories.
I am a typography design lecturer who has over 20 years of calligraphy writing experience. To me calligraphy writing is more than just a form of artistic expression, it is a good from of relaxation, where one needs to maintain his/her focus at all time in order to create beautiful letter forms. This process requires one to connect his/her mind, heart and hand movement.
