Mr. Ma’s Calligraphy is presented on different materials in various ways. Winner of many international awards, in keeping with calligraphy practice for 40 years, Mr. Ma has explored the styles of different time periods and moved forward with further development of Chinese characters.

Around the corner at Bohemia Framery and Fine Art, on A Street, an extraordinary exhibit of contemporary calligraphic work will be presented by the Artist Alok Hsu Kwang-han through June. He is an internationally acclaimed and highly original Zen calligraphic artist whose paintings are a striking synthesis of the beauty of Chinese calligraphy, the spontaneity and simplicity of Zen, as well as the evolution of Western Psychotherapy. These paintings are like Zen gates — entering the paintings we “come home” to ourselves.
