Who is Calligraphy Masters?
In 2013 Milen Balbuzanov found a review by Theosone demonstration Calligraphy using the Pilot Parallel Pens, and that was it. He fell in love. Early 2014, he decided to pull together information on Calligraphy – inspirational images, videos, and most importantly other calligraphy and hand lettering artists. This was easier said than done as much of the information was either outdated or links terminated with little result. Frustrated, but inspired by the little he found, he decided to contact those who’s links inspired him to become part of a community idea he named ‘Calligraphy Masters’. From this, he started promoting Calligraphy Masters on Facebook and Instagram, showing content of works he found inspiring. He started with six other artists, today the Calligraphy Masters Team numbers 36.
