Brush calligraphy is a style of writing that is very similar to calligraphy. In this form of calligraphy, each alphabet requires a heavy pressure on downward strokes. The upper strokes require lighter pressure. The term “brush calligraphy” is an umbrella term for calligraphy that is created with a brush. It is also known as modern calligraphy. Rooftop conducted a workshop with Celeste Vennel to spread awareness about this unique art form.
