Chinese form of calligraphy name art!


Chinese names for guests based on their English name.  Many of the Chinese characters are also found in many Japanese names and words so there is some overlap with Japanese.

It was believed in the ancient times that good luck and fortune would come by having one’s name painted!  This delightful art form, also referred to as Chinese writing, still exists today!

Brush is the traditional writing instrument for Chinese calligraphy. The body of the brush is commonly made from bamboo or other materials.  The head of the brush is typically made from animal hair.

Calligraphy brushes are widely considered an extension of the calligrapher’s arm.

“Calligraphy is sheer life experienced through energy in motion that is registered as traces on silk or paper, with time and rhythm in shifting space its main ingredients.”[ – Stanley Baker
