Kalo Chu is a calligrapher based in Hong Kong. She was awarded the Certificate of Proficiency in Engrosser’s Script by the IAMPETH (The International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting) in 2020. Her calligraphy studio ‘Kalo Make Art’ is located in Central, Hong Kong, where she regularly holds calligraphy events. There are a range of events she hosts, such as calligraphy workshops, sharing sessions and pen meets in different themes, and she welcomes all walks of life, from children to adults, that shows an image of being lively and energetic in popularizing the art of Western calligraphy.
I first met Kalo in 2017 when She was on a trip to Macau, we were in a cafe where we exchanged a lot about how was it to learn as well as to teach western calligraphy in Hong Kong and Macau. When we met for the second time, we met in her studio located in Central, Hong Kong, where I felt her passions in teaching and sharing Western calligraphy with all the calligraphy tools and collections that are so well displayed, additionally with the cozy and comfortable teaching space in the studio.
When I just made the prototype of my first calligraphy ruler, I sent her one to give it a try and I received important advice and encouragement from her. She also invited me to her studio for sharing sessions while I was getting into the path of being a professional dip-pen maker. Generosity and enthusiasm are her most memorable traits to me.
I wanted to invite Kalo to write the foreword of this book at the very early stage in the preparation, I picked up encouragement and energy from her as always. Here is an extract from the foreword of the book that I would like to share with you. I want to show my gratefulness and appreciation to her by this chance and I look forward to expressing them in person soon.
