A calligraphic exhibition of Sun Boxiang is on display
Sponsored by Chinese Calligraphers Association and the National Art Museum of China, an exhibition of Sun Boxiang is currently on display at the museum.
In celebration of the artist’s 80th birthday anniversary, the exhibition showcases more than 110 pieces of calligraphic artworks and traditional Chinese paintings created in the past two years. The exhibits include both large and small-sized artworks.
Sun Boxiang, born in Wuqing, Tianjin, learned calligraphy at his early age and has been devoted to artistic creation. He used to learn from Wang Xuechong and Sun Qifeng.
Sun Boxiang was engaged in researches into the tradition for a quite long time including the regular script in the Tang dynasty and the stone tablet in the Northern Wei dynasty. The artist spent much time in copying, deliberation and observation on different styles, pattern and charm of the stone tablet in the Wei dynasty.
A collection book named “Sun Boxiang Calligraphic Art” is issued at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, which is his fourth solo artistic collection.
