> DESCRIPTION

Chinese calligraphy can demonstrate a person’s big ideal and manifest the spirit of the times. On the midsummer of Beijing, the sun is shining fiercely. People engaged in the same pursuit get together, and worthy persons gather in crowds. Born in Yingchuan, Mr. You has devoted himself in calligraphy for 60 years and created hundreds of great calligraphic works. Showing his handwriting in the presence of all, he aimed at listening to good advice and beneficial criticism.
The Chinese nation is an excellent one of being full of wisdom and creativity. Our ancestors have created a splendid national culture, and Chinese calligraphy is one of the treasures. It is an important art style in which oriental civilization differs from western civilization. Chinese characters, the carriers of the art of calligraphy, are the source of the pride of the Chinese nation.
Mr. You loves to be quiet, exercises himself and cultivates his moral character, pursues his studies in a strict way. He has been engaged in calligraphy for over 60 years. “Firstly imitate and inherit good from the ancients, then create personal style different from the ancients”, and keep the balance. His works not only has his own style but also features archaic charm, and is free and easy with temperament embodied in it. He is an outstanding one of so many calligraphers.
We sincerely hope that Mr. You’s health is well; his calligraphy is improved greatly and keeps popular forever! Wish exhibition a great success!
