The River-stroke by JY

Like the tributaries coursing through rolling hills and valleys, Jameson Yap’s calligraphy art is an undulating and elevated articulation of tradition, poetry, syntax, meter and emotions. With each stroke of his brush, akin to tributaries flowing into a confluence of thoughts, a river of expressions.
The River stroke is a homage to his grandfather’s traditions - sojourns into memory; joy, love, anguish, and desire. When at first seen as unconventional and a brackish riposte to the traditions, Jameson’s art is very much steeped in the craft and deftness of traditional Chinese calligraphy. 
Beyond that, his art sees a world no longer delineated by rules, but only of a single-minded expression of thought, infused with layers of contemplation and purpose, expressed in the movement of his unceasing River stroke.
