The #TwitterMural project was a partnership between the City of Mississauga and the Calligraphic Arts Guild of Toronto. The project was completed in the spring of 2013 during Youth Week. Several members of CAGT were involved with the training of students, planning, design, layout and painting of the mural. Learn more about the project in this gallery of slides presentation below…
What a terrific way to lift calligraphy out of the somber rare book libraries and into the mainstream of our 21st century!
I think Steve’s personal Klingspore script (computer version) is amazing. Mr Gutenberg would be
proud as would Rudolf Koch.
BTW: What kind of brush and paint did you use Steve?
Thanks for your comment! It was a fun project. We used acrylic paint that was first primed, then later sealed using an environmentally sensitive product. I used a Liquitex free style 1″ wide brush. It worked great. I also had a wider brush for the drop-caps. Thinning out the paint was key.
What an amazing co-incidence. As some of you may know I share my artwork on flickr. Someone who I didn’t know ‘favorited’ a few of my pieces. I checked out their collection of favs and spotted this shot below. This is so weird as I didn’t know the person who ‘favorited’ my shots yet I spoted this amazing photo with our calligraphy twitter mural in the background. This is complete co-incidence as to how I stumbled upon these shots below…
