CHINESE INK PAINTING & CALLIGRAPHY

Calligraphy is one of the oldest art forms in the world still practiced today and the IAMA is proud to have several works exemplifying this ancient tradition housed in our gallery. The collection contains works crafted in the running and cursive styles, of the five traditional schools, as well as some original and unique works. Accomplished calligraphers are expected to be skillful in other fields such seal carving, painting, poetry, writing, and music, since all of this informs and shapes their calligraphic art. Our gallery contains poetry and proverbs written by notable Calligraphers such as Wu Changshuo, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, as well the Qing dynasty Emperor Yongzheng.
