The existence and development of any art are its own needs and the product of the times, and are imprinted with the mark of the times. Facing the current context of regular script culture, we should vigorously promote its artistic character.
The creation of regular script should not be based on regular script, but supplemented by regular script. Explore the sense of communication between the body of the book to prevent Kai from being too stable and losing its vitality, and grass from being too flowing and losing its thick stagnation, so that the signifier of the calligraphy language is more coordinated and decent.
In the creation of Wei Kai's "Xu Wen Chang Biography", I emphasized writing. The pursuit of shape is the soul of regular script, and the line is its essence. Try the practice of mutual reference between Kai and Xingbi, and the transformation of typefaces, transform the inherent strokes, and write with cursive strokes to make the strokes easy, natural, and lively. Introduce some highly-conventional lines of grass and grass, and use them in the creation after transformation, to increase the sense of oldness and ease; learn from the writing of a few Jianjian and the scripture ink to increase lyricism. Especially in the process of "carving and casting inscriptions and pens and inks", we will use the grass ink method for reference to enrich the charm of the ink and prevent the lines from being monotonous.
While broadening the creative thinking, the regular script in the pen is no longer sitting upright, such as being supreme, but rather looking forward to life and having fun.
