There are many good artists here on wordpress and I find the work of quite a few of you very exciting. I know, of course, that most of you have not studied the art of Chinese calligraphy very intensively. So I would be all the more interested in whether the work I’ve been doing lately works can be apreciated by art lovers who do not come from that culture.

This is no “fishing for compliments”, but in times of Covid_19, exchanging thoughts on the internet is particularly helpful I think. So not the technical part of the brush work but the question of whether the optical appearance is visually appealing and arouses interest or if is is considered strange, weird, of no interest.

Thank you and happy work for 2021!

  1. Hi. I understand, personally I like the abstract of what you do.. not all or every one appeals to me, but because i am partial to ab abstract art, I find what you don must interesting. We are all unique in how we express ourselves.. You combine, words and pictures, allowing for another version of what IS.


  2. I have no training in Chinese calligraphy but I can definitely appreciate the skill it takes to create the work that you do. I love the fluidity of the lines and the intricate construction of the words. I find looking at this work very inspirational and I really hope that you do a lot more this year! Maybe you could do a video/YouTube demonstrating how you make your art. I have watched videos of people painting fish and dragons with one brush, which is fabulous to watch.


  3. Thank you so much, Janice, for yor kind words! Much appreciated! Yes, a video sure would be useful. I will get me a new homepage/theme on wordpress with a more modern touch which makes using other media easier.

    I check your nice works from time to time and always find it inspiring to look at other people’s artrork closer. As mentioned I do traditional Chinese calligraphy since decades ( even studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing). But for many years I did not see modern Chinese calligraphy that struck me – but the Japanese, yes.

    Sure I will do more and will add some from time to time at my homepage. Good luck! f
