Wang Dongling’s solo exhibition, From Inception, at Zhejiang Art Museum presents his 60 years of calligraphy exploration journey. He experimented with various traditional calligraphy such as Ink abstraction, silver-salt calligraphy, and stainless-steel calligraphy. He integrated academic research with media experimentation that spans through virtual and reality. Focusing on the gestures and techniques, Wang’s works created an indisputable chaotic book based on his extensive knowledge and his calligraphy skills.
