Calligraphy is a highly refined form of visual art that is related/originates in writing. Usually calligraphy is done with a broad tip brush or other writing instruments such as a quill, pen and qalam. The art of calligraphy has flourished for thousands of years in East Asia, South Asia, the Islamic world such as Persia and finally found a foothold in the Western World. In the West we need to recognize that calligraphy is identifiable by the use of Latin script after about 600 BC. Celtic illuminated manuscripts and christianity during the medieval times used calligraphy to copy the New Testament and other sacred texts. From Roman times, this is where uncal and half-uncal originated. The finest examples of calligraphy were clearly produced in all of Asia that also included the Islamic world. Islamic calligraphy is often association with geometric patters on walls and ceilings of mosques whereas Asian art forms were more active with producing fantastic works of art on paper. Of course all artists used as many different kind of media as possible to excel in their artistic excellence. Many modern artists have re-approached the ancient forms to produce high quality artworks.

Debbi Chan - I am going to do an updated artist's statement. But until I submit it you have a short temporary one. As an artist I an fullfilled and contend. But at the same time I seek more , absorb more, and enjoy more. Art fills and fullfills me..I am always being an artist. My eyes see art always. This is not a hobby that I partake of when time suits. Art feeds me. Art consoles me. And being prolific it also takes my time. And for this I am thankful that i listened to my inner self. I am thankful for a following that grows by the minute. I enjoy you enjoying my portfolio. I also have come to realize that the coined phrase "starving artist" is a reality for some of us. But if you take another quote, my own , you will see that starving and rich pertain to material $. because of you the viewers , and because art is my life and my passion I can truly say that I AM RICH.. RICH WITH NO MONEY... and I can also say with truth that I am happy. I chose the path that allowed this rich life. There will continue ...

Kichung Lizee - After coming to this country from Korea in the mid 60's to study art, among the many forms of Western art that I was introduced to, Abstract Expressionism interested me most. Currently I am in the process of synthesizing Eastern and Western approaches to art. Specifically, I'm adopting the techniques and materials of Eastern calligraphy to Western thematic material, my primary goal being to close the gap between East and West and reach for universal creativity. Eastern calligraphy I learned is a living and breathing spirit, rather than the dead and rigid tradition of thousands of years. It is uniquely a form that conveys the pulsation of life energy. Through it, one can experience all aspects of the living spectrum. Eastern calligraphic form reveals the kind of life the artist has led, as well as foreshadowing the person one will become. It is the art form that manifests the self as a way of life or philosophy of life. It is a powerful art form that operates through direct intuition. As an artist I rely heavily on creative intuition. Moving with changes in the stream of consciousness, my creative intuition somehow brings out the subconscious and superconscious through ...

Jamshed Aziz - I am texturing the `Herf `(words) of holy book (Ouran) which has all solutions for humanity. Calligraphy in Islam therefore is not just a matter of script it is considered a mystic process of Self discovery, exploring the true geometry of the sprit. I am an artist of modern approach and my art work is embedded in the rich tradition of holy craft. The letters and words are not indistinct, though at places due to the principals color and tone and emphasis, they more from readable to elusive finally letters turn into an image textured by an inner rhythm. ...

Dave Martsolf - Dave Martsolf I have a hand-drawing personal style that I love, but also use photorealistic collage style for some surreal work. In addition, I continue to enjoy explorations in every direction. My surreal visionary style is conceived in the bowels of endless empty space. Worlds come out of nowhere to define and fill empty space with form and reflected light. I use posed photographs with specific viewpoints that join seamlessly with other images to develop a hallucinogenic, some say gut-wrenching realistic space where mind-bending visions rule. My personal drawing style is in its simplest essence the line the drawn line and what it represented as the delineation of a form, a space, almost the way a topographical line feels out the form of a hill, or the way a blind man feels out the tender forms of his or her lover. That line is also the signature of the vibration of life and lifes emotions, twisted by the influence of others, fighting for a day in the sun, learning the way of calm, the mastery of the surf of life and the swell of love and anger. Brownian motion, cosmic ray decay, elemental particles, the paths of ...
