About the Instructor

Malik Mazlan has been a Chinese calligraphy student for the past six years. But like any good story, his journey in pursuing this traditional art has taken quite a few turns - landing him in different countries.
His favourite form of calligraphy is the Seal Script - an ancient form of writing common in China throughout the latter half of the first millennium BC.
He discovered how the engineering of the Chinese brush allows the calligrapher to evoke emotion through the strokes.
