The countries of East Asia have a very old and rich culture dating back long before America. And many of these countries are so unique in the culture such as Korea, Vietnam, Japan, and of course China. I have always had an interest in this culture because of the complex language barrier with other western Roman-based language countries.

After searching online I put together this awesome showcase of Asian calligraphy art photos. The designs are written using a brush stroke on typical parchment paper or scrolls. But there are also examples of calligraphy in wood and other common household items. The East Asian languages use beautiful strokes in their characters which diverge eloquently between each other. Check out this really unique gallery and let us know your thoughts in the post discussion area.
