The story of aesthetic writing has evolved many fold since ancient times. Back then calligraphy was framed within the limitations of technical skills, material availability, time and place. It was used to bolt certain sacred inscriptions or information of utmost value on mediums like palm leaves, stone, bamboo, cloth or anything that was conveniently available at that time. To much contrast, modern calligraphy ranges from functional hand-lettered inscriptions and designs to mere fine-art pieces where the abstract expression of the handwritten mark may or may not compromise the legibility of the letters. With the advent of technology, today there are no limitations that bind the artist - the results can be unimaginable and beautiful! 

Who can say black and white is boring? It's anything but that right?
