One-Stroke Calligraphy by Venerable Master Hsing Yun

This is the first time that art by the renowned Chan Buddhist master Hsing Yun has been exhibited in London. Now at the age of 90, he has gone blind and cannot read, but that has not stopped his art. He explains: “Once my brush is dipped in ink, I must complete it within one stroke – otherwise, I will not know where to start with the second stroke. Relying on my intuition, no matter how many characters from a phrase I need to write, I must accomplish it in one stroke in order to reach my goal. Thus it is called ‘One-Stroke Calligraphy.’"
