Our Story

Chinese Calligraphy for Everyone Around the World

Calligraphy Zen aims to build the bridge of cultural learning and exchange between the world and Taiwan. Moreover, Calligraphy Zen also plan on creating the favorable conditions for learning calligraphy in Taiwan, not only for foreign visitors but also for those who grew up in Taiwan and but became unaware of our cultural roots. Through extensive research and modern means, Calligraphy Zen would integrate ancient and modern ways of learning and refocus the art to be more liberal, accessible, and mindful.

Listed by the United Nations as an intangible cultural heritage, Chinese calligraphy has over 5000 years of history. Five major script styles developed over time due to politics, social changes, and utility.

Calligraphy Zen offers interesting sessions on various aspects of Chinese calligraphy to deepen understanding and appreciation for this art form, including calligraphy masters’ stories, philosophy, techniques, and masterpieces.

“Creating a special Chinese calligraphy learning platform that is dedicated to cultural learning, mental health enrichment, and art appreciation.”
