On the second floor of the Dong Fang Gu Yuan Art Market, Ma Wenyuan settled down in front of his desk. Inside the calligraphy shop featuring the cursive style. I visited his store without noticing him in advance. While I entered, he was concentrating on his writing.

I was fully captivated by his vigorous calligraphy. He said he could write one character in 25 different ways. In order to keep the best skill, everyday he spent at least 2 hours on practicing.

Mr. Ma Wenyuan isn't a professional calligraphist. He ever worked as a news correspondent, and served in the army during his younger days. However, calligraphy has always been his favorite pastime.

His name, Wenyuan, meaning origin of handwriting was given by his teacher in primary school who was amazed by his excellent handwriting when he was only 8 years old. For 60 years Mr. Ma has never been tired of calligraphy.

Prices of Ma Wen Yuan's calligraphy works vary from RMB200 to RMB3000.

Beautiful calligraphy exhibition
