For many years, Mr. Enpu has been devoting himself to Calligraphy and has made many good friends. During his interview, Mr. Enpu always emphasized that “To make friends from all walks of life, we must have charitable heart towards each other.”

As an outsider and academic calligrapher, it would be difficult for him to establish himself in Shanghai. However, he believes that work will speak for itself. It has to be both valuable in content and full of individualistic style. Moreover, it should also be accepted by experts and popularized among ordinary people. With such principle, Mr. Enpu soon established himself firmly in the Shanghai calligraphy art circle.
