Calligraphy As Grid

It's always intriguing to find different artists who come to the same conclusions artistically. On the right we have Denise Lach and this example of her work is from Terres d'ecritures. Although almost everything about her is in French, you can still get the gist of her oeuvre by viewing her work.

They're both presenting the written wordy as a grid or a minimal pattern where the subject matter is not the meaning of the words, but of the visual pattern itself.

The above work is by Ruslan Naiden and the image is from Calligraphy MVK, which is a huge calligraphy site you'll want to explore. We're not talking wedding invitations here; this is contemporary calligraphy that will surprise you.
