The current calligraphy and painting exhibition’s subject is “Boundless Ink Melody, Voice of Green Hearts.”

The concept of “boundlessness” is fundamentally embodied by the vast sea of knowledge, the boundless nation of Buddhism, boundless prosperity, boundless philosophy, and possibly even life itself.

After years of rigorous polishing, adjusting, and taming, Mr. Chen Heliang’s original “Boundless” calligraphy has developed into a distinctive, visually-refreshing artistic technique. It represents the limitless greenery and tranquility that surrounds the natural planet, related to the infinite and limitless lush scenery of Earth. It is as boundless as the majesty of the skies and earth, as boundless as the multi-colored expanse of the sea and sky.

He possesses extensive understanding of the Four Books and Five Classics, Tang and Song poetry, as well as profound and original research and insights into classic Chinese philosophical ideas including Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. His calligraphy exhibits natural skill and reveals an inexhaustible charm with every brushstroke. In addition to offering a distinctive interpretation of Chinese characters, the “Boundless” calligraphy pieces also preserve and advance traditional culture.

Mr. Chen Heliang created a “Green Series” of paintings in addition to the “Boundless” calligraphy system.
