Festival starts by honouring traditional Vietnamese calligraphers

The festival, the second of its kind in Vietnam, was opened on January 12 as part of the Vung Tau tourism fair. It drew the participation of talented calligraphers from 12 clubs across the country.

Duong Minh Hoang, a young calligrapher, who is well-known for the longest piece of calligraphy, Hịch tướng sĩ or Proclamation to Soldiers, said, “I always ponder over ways to enhance my skills and improve my knowledge about calligraphy in order to form my own style. I hope that the public will appreciate seeing a product by a calligrapher as young as me, and see the importance of young people being involved in the country's culture in order to preserve it."

My Hanh, 65, from Gia Ngo Calligraphy Club in HCM City, was also honoured to present her work to visitors.

“I started to study calligraphy a decade ago. My love for such a career was nurtured when I attended calligraphy exhibitions. Then I decided to take classes. After a year of studying, I sold my first three works. It takes a lot of patience to pursue this art,” Hanh said.

Le Vu, 64, who is renowned for his works depicting the world’s famous people, said, “I incorporate letters from the names of famous people to form my hangings poster. Sometimes it can take me a week to complete one."

Le Vu has just completed his 200th calligraphy on famous people.
