In an age of innovation and constant change, it is important to take a step back to see that old traditions are still relevant. An art that is going through its revival is Calligraphy. It is supported by stores such as Man Luen Choon – a store that was set-up by the owner’s grandfather about 60 years ago.

The store takes into account three different cultures: China, Japan and Taiwan – Japanese being of the best quality. Located in Central amongst various galleries and antique stores, Man Luen Choon is well-known for providing mounting and framing services – assisting with corporations such as the Bank of China to repair and frame old Chinese paintings.

Calligraphy is the visual art of expression. With educational institutions offering degrees for Chinese painting and calligraphy, the significance and importance of Man Luen Choon will become a landmark for carrying on an important part of East-Asian history.
