Discovering Calligraphy

For a long time I have been intrigued by Calligraphy. It is a beautiful art with a deep philosophy, It is a written language read by Chinese, vietanmese,  Koreans and Japanese although they use different pronounciation.

As right now I am the happiest artist.

As part of my new year 2019 resolutions I wanted to take some Tai Chi classes to work on the concept of energy and take some calligraphy workshop to learn the tradional discipline of chinese fine art.

As it turns out I think that Tai Chi classes will be enough for me in 2019 . Both of these two disciplines require hours and many years of praticing to really integrate the full chinese rigourous forms of art.

Tai Chi is not disappointing ...

WUTC/ NPR Recording

I was invited by DANTE'S  OLD SOUTH RADIO to record an interview on WUTC in Chattanooga, TN and I am very grateful for that. It felt as I was live on radio though.I went  on talking too much about something I did not want to give the priority  to and did not really talk as much as I wanted about my art  and myself because It has always been so hard to talk about me and the part of myself I put into my painting- which is about the whole me- There is a reason why...

This 48x48in Vinyl on canvas artwork has been a success on social media. It is certainely one of the public favorites.URBANE BRONZE 1. Warm, earthy but a lot of light, this is the perfect  balance for  a central piece. It will be easily the focal point of any room. I can help you get the perfect wooden floater frame to go with it. Gold or champagne color looks very good with it.

Then the client suggested a bit m...
