Chinese Calligraphy Art

Chinese Calligraphy Art is an art that is unique to China. This article gives an insight into the history of Chinese Calligraphy Art.

The literal meaning of calligraphy is beautiful handwriting. In olden days, the books were hand-written using a quill and ink on the materials such as vellum or parchment. A person with beautiful and readable handwriting worked as a scribe. There are mainly three main styles of calligraphy - Arabic, Chinese and Roman.

Chinese Calligraphy Art is also known as Oriental calligraphy. The scholars opine that Chinese Calligraphy Art is not only a way to write Chinese characters but also is a unique Chinese art, which was a part of ancient Chinese culture. The Chinese Calligraphy Art style is divided into calligraphy that was developed in ancient China and imperial China.

In ancient China, incidents were inscribed on the bones of animals or on the shells of tortoises. This form of Chinese Calligraphy Art was popular during the Bronze Age and is popularly known as shell and bone script. It was also known as oracle bone script. The Chinese alphabets of the ancient Chinese language are known as Jiaguwen. Later these characters were replaced by Jin wen, the script written on bronze plates or any bronze ware and Dazhuan, known popularly as the large Seal script or Great Seal script.

Around 220 BC, Qin Shi Huang conquered the entire Chinese basin. He was the first emperor to standardize the Chinese alphabets. Li Si, the prime minister of Qin Huang was a famous calligrapher. He developed a set of characters called Xiǎozhuàn and these characters were standardised by the emperor. The writing tool used was brush and steeles. The calligraphy style that was popularised in imperial China are Lishu style and Kaishu style.
