Lin Yuwei

In this strangely shaped seal Lin Yuwei (林裕偉), a contemporary seal carver from Taiwan, has broken the usual rules of calligraphy almost to the point of illegibility. This seal contains seven characters going from left to right and top to bottom but, by connecting one character to another and rearranging parts of characters, the artist has created a visual puzzle. The nontraditional non-rectangular shape without borders adds to the way this artist tries to push the boundaries of modern seal carving.
