Chinese culture is profound and rich, among which Chinese painting and calligraphy are particularly elegant and aesthetically pleasing. The artistic attainments are both highly intellectual and inspiring. Chinese calligraphy not only displays the beautiful image of Chinese characters, but also presents the philosophy of life through the abstract expression of Chinese characters and through the cultural contexts. Chinese calligraphy is therefore more than mere a branch of visual arts; it is also an enjoyable communication of minds. In addition, Chinese painting shares the joy of similar abstract ideas and inspiration through the presentation of various styles. It is one of the unique artistic achievements calling for our attention.
