    I believe that it is art everytime it is created. But it is no longer art when it's either overused as a font, or abused as an advertisement.

    Art.
    a.The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium.
    b.The study of these activities.
    c.The product of these activities; human works of beauty considered as a group.

    Calligraphy has no colours, sounds, or movements I guess, but it's beauty can depend on peoples opinion... to me, calligraphy is just writing =/ I mean, you can make it look fancy all you want, but it's still just something written for people to read in my mind.

    Yes, calligraphy is artwork because its not just regular writing. I've seen someone do calligraphy and i assure u they can't just write it down like normal letters. I've also heard that ancient chinese calligraphy has alot to due with sword practice as well cause it builds u concentration and the movement of ur hands.

    I agree on what you said, totally. I am a not an expert in Calligraphy, but I am still learning. As you said, it is not like writing regularly. It is an art.

    I love it sooo much, but it is very hard. That is what makes it extremely interesting.
