Chinese calligraphy is the essence and representation of Chinese traditional culture. With his traditional calligraphic works, he gives it new meaning.  He has omitted the recognizable writing style and strengthened more of the drawing characters.  From the structure of his work, the rhythmic action of the lines, the speed, the power of the brush stroke, he creates the experience of the “Zen” atmosphere of calmness.  There is harmony with logical, structural and poetic enthusiastic substance.
