Jao Tung-i
Prof. Jao immersed himself in calligraphy from a young age, studying ancient inscriptions. He is one of the few masters of the dying art of Wei Bei calligraphy. His calligraphy exudes a natural charm, calling to mind the famous Shu Po Weng couplet: “I sit here calmly, in silence, blessed by the books around me” (無事此靜坐,有福方讀書). The exhibits are in private collections and rare in market, they are mainly calligraphy works but there are also paintings of landscapes, figures, birds and flowers, including Prof. Jao’s best known lotus paintings. Collectors can take a glimpse of the conversion style of Prof. Jao in the near decades.
