Dao Huy Hoang calligrapher.jpg

Hoang is a full-time calligrapher based in Hanoi, Vietnam. Deeply inspired by his late grandfather, he learnt from calligrapher Margaret Shepherd and spends time studying lettering and history. He is recognised international calligraphy artist despite his young age. He was awarded the 2016 IAMPETH scholarship to attend Annual Convention in Portland, Oregon, US; 2017 Dancing Letters Scholarship to attend international calligraphy conference Letterworks in Ogden, UT, US and 2018 Seattletters Scholarship in Bellingham, WA. 

Hoang teaches both the broad nib and the pointed pen, specialized in Roman, Italic, Roundhand, Spencerian and Flourishing classes. His international teaching tour started in Singapore and Jakarta in 2015, and has since been invited to teach in the various cities in the US, Australia, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan. 

Hoang is also a pen maker; he makes pen holders by hand and is constantly driven to improve his craftsmanship to place beautiful pens in the hands of new owners. He also learn Japanese Urushi (lacquer painting) and bring his pens to new level of art.
