The first standardized writing in China originating from 220B.C. Qin Dynasty, Seal Script carries great cultural significance, while embodying an enigmatic beauty of balance and expressive meditation of the mind.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
We partner with two award-winning calligraphy masters in China to bring you original ancient Seal Script art works.
Each are beautifully hand brushed using the finest traditional materials.
Psalm 1:1-3 by Ruan Tian Chao in his trademark cursive-like style
Psalm 1:1-3 by Chen Jia Lin, in his signature 'spindly' style
Ruan Tian Chao's brushstrokes "stretch like the mountains and move with the ebb and flow of rivers." These 'cursive-like' strokes enthral the viewer in their daring artistry. An enigmatic dance; a dialogue with these timeless words from the Psalms.
Chen Jia Lin's lifetime of honing his craft is reflected in his spindly strokes of the brush. Although conveying a sense of austerity in motion, their practiced elegance and structure point to a richer and deeper moral universe, as illustrated in Psalm 1.
