In fifteen original compositions of English letters and Chinese characters formed in pen and brush work, Man of Letters traces the career of acclaimed Oregon calligrapher Allen Wong. Youngest son of Wong On, poet, and founder of Hung Far Low. Allen spent 19 years as a graphic designer in New York City before returning to Oregon to start the Graphic Arts program at Oregon State University. Influenced by Lloyd Reynolds’ modern calligraphy movement, Wong developed his own style of abstract impressionist Chinese calligraphy. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.

Man of Letters is the first installment of the Portland Chinatown Museum’s new series of exhibitions celebrating the work of Portland Chinatown artists.
