Modern Vietnamese Calligraphy

    Newer Older

    Calligraphy written with Vietnamese characters: This stylized work is by the painter Tran Dat, who is introducing a harmony between the shapes of Chinese characters and Vietnamese characters, which are based on the roman alphabet. If you turn the image on top 90 degrees counter-clockwise, you can read the Vietnamese words. It is meant to be displayed vertically, so that it appears as an ancient Chinese text at first. These four lines are from the poem "Travel in the South" by Nguyen Binh.

      I'd love to use these for a logo I'm doing for a Vietnamese restaurant - is there a higher res version?
