Zen Calligraphic Art
Alok Hsu Kwang-han is an internationally acclaimed and highly original Zen calligraphic painter from China. His art is a startling new synthesis of the beauty of Chinese calligraphy,the spontaneity of Zen,and the evolution of western psychotherapy. His paintings are not only unusual and striking in their beauty, they also convey an invitation for us to enter. Quietly entering the paintings, we come home to ourselves. With a few spontaneous brush strokes, Alok paints whatever subject is presented before him in the moment–heartful music, Japanese haikus,the essence of a particular individual,three jokes on the innocence of children, sayings of enlightened masters,a prayer for the healing of the world,or his beloved saying,”The heart always breaks!”
