Friday Night Flicks: Kaoru Akagawa and Moyu Zhang Fan

Today’s flicks feature two calligraphers, one working from the Japanese tradition, one from the Chinese. The first video features the work of Kaoru Akagawa, who creates images using calligraphy. I would suggest watching the video twice: once for the sub-titles and once for the images.

 

 

The second video shows Moyu Zhang Fan at work, using quite a different approach from that of Akagawa.

 

 

Perhaps you will have a chance to try your hand at some brush lettering this weekend.
