There seem to be art practices like calligraphy, sumi painting, shakuhachi etc. that seem to go well with traditional sitting practice. What about Western art practices that seem to come from such a different root and energy. Could you please say something about this. Thank you.

Of course, Zen is about raising you samadhi, that is why painting, music, opera, sports, dancing - all depend on samadhi to be truly developed. That is why they all can support Zen practice.
