An article was published about the visit of school lecturer calligrapher Linas Spurga (junior) and his creative workshop at the invitation of the Finnish Calligraphy Society.
It’s great when the creative collaboration between School of Calligraphy and Lettering Art named under prof. A. Kliševičius and the Calligraphy Society of Finland continues.
At the invitation of the Finnish colleagues, calligrapher Linas Spurga (jr.) gave an interview, which is published in the magazine of the Calligraphic Society of Finland “Sulkanen.”
“In this interview Linas speaks about his studies at the VAA Graphic Arts Department and how he started working as a calligrapher. How he was impacted by the Brody Neuenschwander calligraphy workshop he attended and his career after finishing the Academy: calligraphy commissions, graphic design and teaching. This interview is also about what inspires a calligrapher—other calligraphers, artists such as Cy Twombly or artist groups like Bokujinkai. Linas talks about creating art in a general sense, everyday anxieties, future plans and dreams as well as thoughts on the future of calligraphy.”
