This Korean Calligraphy Artist Creates Large-Scale Works of Art
Most people sit at a desk when they do calligraphy, using careful and precise brushstrokes. Not Lee Hong-Jae. He takes his art to an epic extreme, writing on a long scroll spread out on the ground with a big brush. The calligrapher and Ta-Muk performance artist from Daegu, South Korea, puts his whole body into moving the writing instrument. He mops and muscles the characters into existence, creating large-scale works of art full of energy.
This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
