CLAS Honoured Fellows
Dr Manny LingI lecture in the Design Department at the University of Sunderland and initiated the special research emphasis on calligraphy there in 1999 (International Research Centre for Calligraphy: www.ircc.org.uk). I am also Programme Leader for the University’s Foundation Degree in Calligraphy with Design at Kensington Palace.
Being a Chinese person practising Western calligraphy has had a profound influence on my life. I like the contrasts and contradictions in my work: East and West, Old and New, Energy and Stillness. I exhibit, lecture and run workshops around the world and am also the design editor of the EDGE journal published by CLAS. My work is in the Fitzwilliam Collection of Contemporary Calligraphy in Cambridge.
