Title

Automatic generation of artistic chinese calligraphy

Language

English

Abstract

Chinese calligraphy is among the finest and most important of all Chinese art forms and an inseparable part of Chinese history. Its delicate aesthetic effects are generally considered to be unique among all calligraphic arts. Its subtle power is integral to traditional Chinese painting. A novel intelligent system uses a constraint-based analogous-reasoning process to automatically generate original Chinese calligraphy that meets visually aesthetic requirements. We propose an intelligent system that can automatically create novel, aesthetically appealing Chinese calligraphy from a few training examples of existing calligraphic styles. To demonstrate the proposed methodology's feasibility, we have implemented a prototype system that automatically generates new Chinese calligraphic art from a small training set.
