Cheng Shibi currently lives in Hengyang, in Central China’s Hunan Province.

A lifelong reader and teacher, Cheng Shibi is fascinated with Chinese calligraphy and Chinese ink painting. He enjoys doing both of these, especially because of what he calls their “mood-adjustment” properties!

In his books, Cheng Shibi offers something of an innovation on the traditional thickness-and-density-of-ink, and variation-on-brush-stroke system. By adding color to the already warm feelings they create, he renders an effect more universally understandable and more interesting for all.
