Zengfu

My name is Zhao Zengfu. I have been engaged in the research and practice of Ancient Calligraphy, Seal engraving and Ancient Chinese characters for more than 40 years. Currently I am a member of Beijing branch of Chinese calligrapher's association, a director of Beijing xicheng district literary association, and Vice President of Beijing Oriental calligraphy and Painting Research Association. Seal engraving and Calligraphy are both belong to China's intangible cultural heritage. As a practitioner, I believe that Seal engraving and Calligraphy are both cultural nodes and the keys of traditional Chinese culture. The original intention of this experience is to carry forward and inherit traditional Chinese culture. Besides entertainment, you can also enjoy the experience of ingenuity and spirit of ancient people. I really hope you enjoy the experience.
