The Artist's Statement:
--------The uniqueness of my work.
I was trained since childhood in using Sumi-e ink and a pointed brush to create hieroglyphs. In 1990, I was an art professor at St. Andrews Presbyterian College, and during that time I developed a new art form that I called "Coolligraphy." This form of calligraphy intertwines the letters of a word or words to create a very stylish hieroglyphic image with Sumi-e ink and gouache paint. Not only is this form of art unique, but the process of creating it also requires particular skills that take years of practice to perfect. My demonstrations of this unique art always bring enjoyment and amazement to the audiences at my exhibitions.
Elan Magazine, Greater Washington, has proclaimed that Daniel Nie's "Coolligraphy painting" is a breakthrough in the history of art. This new form of art, Coolligraphy, was evolved from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, French Fauvism, and modern New York Street Graffiti.
