The Famous Chinese Disabled Artist

Overcoming Disability to Create Fine
Asian Calligraphy Artwork


Mr. Wang, a disabled calligraphy artist and at the same
time a renowned calligrapher, was born in a little town in Eastern China.

Before becoming a disabled calligrapher, he was a worker in a water conservancy
unit in his hometown. When he was very young, he encountered a catastrophic
accident in one fieldwork and it made him paralyzed from waist down. In one
moment all his dreams vanished into thin air.

"Without my legs, what can I do? I constantly asked himself." said Mr. Wang.

From now on the only life he knew was the life of a person on a wheelchair. He
saw no hope for himself and sometimes even considered ending his life. Thanks to
the help of families and friends, he gradually found the encourage to live.
However, day after day of being confined to wheelchair.

"Will I have to depend on other‘s help for my rest of life? I should do
something meaningful, so that my life is not worthless." he said.

With the help of families and friends, he started to learn Chinese calligraphy
from Master Zhang and Master Liu. He was told that practicing Chinese
calligraphy is greatly beneficial to people‘s health through its balancing
movement and adjustment of breath, as well as gives a lot of pleasure.

Gradually, he began to love this art form. However, practicing is hard, dull and
time-consuming. To be an excellent calligrapher, diligent practicing is a must.
He told himself to be patient, to be calm, to be persistent. Experiencing thirty
years‘ pain-staking practicing, his artistic skill began obtaining attention of
his masters. They encouraged him to participate in contests in his county, then
in city. His works got countless awards.

In recent years, he made a figure on Chinese calligraphy circle. In the year of
1999, he became a member of the renowned house of calligraphy circle.

"Initially, practicing calligraphy lifted me out of pain of losing legs, brought
me consolation and gave me courage to face various difficulties in life, and I
found new hope. Now I believe in my future and I shall work harder and promote
the calligraphy art form." he said. When he was interviewed by journalists of
famous media and asked what it was like to practice calligraphy these years.

We are glad that he has regained control over his life and become a calligraphy
master. Wish him good health and happy life.
