About the facilitator, Jojo Liu:

Chinese calligraphy is one of the most traditional art forms in the world and is truly representative of Eastern art and culture. My grandfather inspired and taught me to practice Chinese calligraphy from a young age, and I continue to have more love for it every day.

By introducing my experience and passion, I present a modern twist to traditional Chinese calligraphy. My work strikes a delicate balance between traditional calligraphy art with a personal flair.

I hope to continue to spread my passion for Chinese calligraphy as an art form in today’s world. I’m a current board member for the San Francisco Chinese Arts Association (舊金山中華藝術學會) as well as a member of the American Artist Association (美國藝術家協會). My work was published in the 2018 San Francisco Chinese Arts Association Member Catalogue and in the 2019 Chinese American Artists in Los Angeles Member Catalogue.

The event is finished.
