Calligraphy was the paramount visual artform in pre-modern China. Using only brush and ink, calligraphers developed their techniques over generations. Today, this powerfully graphic art is still celebrated as an outward expression of the artist’s inner psychology. Its rhythm, movement and flow are accessible to anyone who views it, not only to those of us who can read Chinese characters. HANRAD was commissioned to create an art rug inspired by the artist Zhou Tai Yu who is a young upcoming calligraphy artist based in Beijing. Zhou’s work shows the art of calligraphy in a modern form and style, and most importantly in colors.
