Asemic Chinese Calligraphy

Wenda Gu (b 1955) is a fascinating Chinese Contemporary Artist who challenges the notions of writing and language by inventing fake calligraphic script. The image is from a Post at Art Radar Asia, (a great site that I follow in my Google Reader) that will pretty much bring you up to speed.

When you visit his Website, you must check out the forest of stone stelas. Simply amazing.
