The International Calligraphy Exchange exhibition is an important stage for calligraphers all over the world since its first session in 1990 was held in Singapore. It is held every two or three years, and has traveled to Beijing, Tokyo, Taipei, Singapore and some other cities.
After seeing some elderly calligraphers’ works, a guest said, “Calligraphy is so amazing! They write characters just as if they are painting. The physical and mental states of them seem much younger than their real ages.”
This international cultural exchange activity is the Bangkok Chinese Cultural Center’s first endeavor with an international cultural association.
