The Celebrity New Calligraphy Style 名人新书风

Chinese calligraphy is one of the highest forms of Chinese art perfectly embodied the rhythm, lines and structure, serving the purpose of conveying the thoughts of the writer and displaying the abstract beauty of lines. It is not only a form of art, but also a Chinese way of life. It’s no exaggeration to say cultivated writing attracts attention and admiration, while poor writing form invites suspicion and scorn. Therefore, in the Chinese communities, it is a sort of tradition for the leaders to cultivate their calligraphic skills so that they can show off these skills whenever the opportunity arises.
Many of these leaders also do not shy away from taking the lead in introducing new and innovative style of writing. Here are some examples of new calligraphy style written by some contemporary famous people.

书法是华人艺术的最高形式之一,其艺术完全体现于书法的节奏、线条与结构,以传达书写者的思想感情与表现线条的抽象美为目的。书法不单是一种艺术,还是华人的生活方式。可以毫不夸张地说,优雅的书写令人倾目与赞叹;而难看的字体受人质疑与鄙视。所以在华人社团里,领袖们传统上都会苦练书法,以便在适当的场合展示一下他们的技巧。
