From 21th to 27th of January 2010. Union of Mongolian Modern Calligrapher organizing this exhibition 4th year.
Boasting a history of at least 1000 years, classical Mongol script is one of the world’s most beautiful art forms. Written in calligraphic style, it represents the great depth of history that Mongolians possess as their cultural heritage and also provides an insight into their worldview.
The ‘New Snow’ exhibition shows how calligraphy expresses human emotions in an evocative and aesthetic way. Historians have noted the Greek origins of calligraphy in the 14th to 16th centuries. However, the brush and calligraphy have been
in use in Asia for much longer. Today, Mongolian calligraphers integrate new styles and new techniques, continuing to develop this unique visual art form.
This exhibition will delight all those with an interest in Mongolian culture and the classical alphabet. The Union of Mongolian Modern Calligraphers is dedicated to supporting young artists who study calligraphy. Through exhibitions such as this one, the public has a special opportunity to be introduced to these artists and observe their development.
Beginning in 2007, ‘New Snow’ has been organized as an annual exhibition. The central goal of the show is to advance the art of young calligraphers and to promote their work to public. Over the past few years, the Union has been proud to watch many artists that participated in ‘New Snow’ develop their skills significantly and achieve international recognition.
