What is calligraphy?
Calligraphy is an artistic domain in which the format and the significance of characters composed of dots and strokes through the usage of brushes and ink.
It is similar to abstract drawings. Dots and strokes gather to form characters, the characters combine to form phrases and collection of these phrases creates a work of art at the movement of the brush. We refer to the writings that were written invigoratingly as ‘Ilpilheuiji (literally, writing with a single stroke of brush)’. This description contains the meaning that calligraphy has characteristic that once it has been written, it cannot be fixed or written over. There is an old saying, ‘Seoyeogiin’, that is, ‘writings reflect the propensities of the writer’. In other words, the personality of the writer is revealed explicitly in his/her writings. Our ancestors considered calligraphy as an important means of nurturing human dispositions and safeguarded the value of calligraphy. From such perspectives, calligraphy must be considered as a valuable cultural heritage of Korea with tradition and practicality.
