Referring to Zhang Shuyan, many people know that he is a publisher, but no one knows his calligraphy accomplishments. Indeed, Zhang Shuyan did not use a knife before he retired. After he retired, he thought about what to do when he had nothing to do. This reminded him of learning calligraphy. However, in less than eight years, Zhang Shuyan's calligraphy was slightly well-known. On behalf of the country, he presented calligraphy to Sri Lanka's President, Speaker of Parliament, Korean leaders, Taiwanese leaders and Russian, Mongolian, Tajikistan embassies, Confucius Institute, Chinese Chamber of Commerce, exchange agencies, etc. and was also given to Sri Lanka Buddhist Academy and Taofen Memorial Hall. Foguangshan Collection. He also inscribes plaques for many places of interest, large enterprises and institutions, and famous trademark brands.
In 2016, in commemoration of the 95th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the National Philatelic Corporation published a set of commemorative books of calligraphy stamps for Zhang Shuyan. Wenlian Publishing House collected Zhang Shuyan's calligraphy works in "People's Favorite Calligrapher", "A Century of Contemporary Chinese Calligraphy Classics" and "Heritage Persons of Chinese Calligraphy and Painting". Red Flag Publishing House will publish Zhang In 2018, Zhang Shuyan and Ouyang Zhongshi published a desk calendar entitled "The Great Works of Art Leaders Inherited from Age to Age".
Anyone familiar with Zhang Shuyan knows that he writes with a brush. From elementary school to retirement, Zhang Shuyan insisted on writing with a brush. He wrote diaries, articles and even minutes of meetings sometimes with a brush, but that was just writing with a brush, not calligraphy. But carelessly inserting willows and willows into the shade, this writing method is very helpful to grasp the brush and the feeling of calligraphy, especially for the fluency requirement of cursive script laid a foundation.
After retirement, Zhang Shuyan felt the great charm of calligraphy in his contacts with Yang Xiangyang, a famous contemporary Chinese painter and calligrapher. "His calligraphic attainments and theoretical height make me admire him very much. He has created nearly one hundred styles of calligraphy, including Li style, Wei stele momentum and seal script charm, as well as grass seal script and Xingli script. At that time, I copied his official scripts, regular scripts and running scripts, which were deeply influenced by him.
From then on, Zhang Shuyan began to copy the letters of famous calligraphers of past dynasties, immersed in them, forgotten, even did not eat or drink for eight hours, from after dinner to 3 a.m. were not tired at all.
Wrapping a piece of paper is life
"Mao Zedong's characters and Yue Fei's calligraphy have their own extraordinary courage, while Wang Xizhi's characters are reflected in the refined brushwork of literati and refined scholars." Zhang Shuyan believed that most of the famous calligraphers in the past dynasties came from generals and historians, which was not accidental or nominal. The level of the realm of calligraphy came from the experience and perception of life. Real calligraphers are not only craftsmen who can write, they need to have profound Chinese culture and self-cultivation.
Perhaps this is the so-called "word as its person". A man's handwriting reflects the road he has traveled, the books he has read and the people he has loved. Because of the special working environment, Zhang Shuyan joined the army for eighteen years. He has been in the publishing industry for more than thirty years. He has run newspapers, magazines, publishers and booksellers. He knows how to operate and collect books well. His calligraphy is quite unique. This is why his characters are loved by many brand enterprises.
"In the world of calligraphy, the more you study, the more you feel ignorant and enthusiastic about learning." Zhang Shuyan usually has many opportunities to contact calligraphy art books, historic sites and calligraphy exhibitions. He cherishes these opportunities very much. Every time he goes to a place, he will find opportunities to go to the bookstore, especially the antique bookstore and the second-hand market to find treasures. He will go to places of interest to be edified and learn the essence of calligraphy art. In addition, Zhang Shuyan is also very fond of literature, history, philosophy and Chinese language. He believes that these are the soul of the art of calligraphy and the basis for its sublimation.
