Underrated Filipino Calligraphers

With the boom of the calligraphy industry, calligraphy workshops have been sprouting all over the place. However, there are still a lot of untapped talents and here at PSST, we like featuring untapped talents.

Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, dip pen, or brush, among other writing instruments.A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as, “the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner”.”

Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the letters may or may not be readable. Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand-lettering, though a calligrapher may practice both.

Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design and typography, original hand-lettered logo design, religious art, announcements, graphic design and commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions, and memorial documents. It is also used for props and moving images for film and television, testimonials, birth and death certificates, maps, and other written works. – Wikipedia

We are in awe of how talented these people are and they just do this for fun. However for those who may want to hire their services, please feel free to reach out to them via Facebook. We should all support our artists and they are some of the brightest calligraphers we have. They just need exposure and the chance to be given their work.
