贺词

记《沧海遗珠》范昌乾书画精品回国展

韩必省


一日相遇,终生难忘。得知范昌乾先生遗作在新加坡下个月展出,十分高兴,首先表示祝贺。

我与范昌乾先生先前并不相识。对于先生的认识和了解主要源于今年九月份在北京中国国际文化交流中心,由新中友好协会和中国国际文化交流中心联合举办"沧海遗珠一范昌乾书画精品回国展”。我受邀参加并亲眼目睹了他的作品,整个画展洋溢着大师的风范,无论是写意花鸟还是山水,画面均冨有韵律和明快,也就像著名画家张大千大师所说:简俊莹洁,妙造自然。无不令人叹服,他的书画艺术必将作为人类艺术宝库中的珍品播芳馨千载,映清辉万代。

范昌乾生长期生活在国外,但从未忘记来自哪里,根在何方?他把传播中国文化当做天然的使命,几十年如一日免费开课授徒,毫无保留地把海派写意的精髓传授给广大美术爱好者,为水墨画树立新风,是海外华人华侨中的楷模和骄傲。范老已是桃李满门,很多弟子也在美术界放出光芒,事实再一次证明范昌乾先生是一位大爱的学者型的书画大家。

范昌乾先生在中国的画展取得了圆满成功,吸引了百余家中央媒体争相报道。他的艺术价值也越来越被书画爱好者和鉴赏者接纳和欣赏,相信范老在新加坡的画展笃定能够取得圆满成功,艺术长青!

Congratulations Messages

The Timeless Ink Heritage - Fan Chang Tien Painting and Calligraphy Masterpiece Homecoming Exhibition

Han Bi Xing


Meet once, unforgettable lifetime. I am very glad to learn that Mr. Fan Chang Tien's legacy will be exhibited in Singapore next month. First of all, congratulations.

I didn't know Mr. Fan Chang Tien before. The understanding of Mr. Fan mainly originated from the "The Timeless Ink Heritage" - Fan Chang Tien's Painting and Calligraphy Masterpiece Homecoming Exhibition held by the China-Singapore Friendship Association and China International Culture Exchange Centre in Beijing this September. I was invited to attend and appreciate his work. The exhibition displayed well rounded style of the master. Whether it is freehand flowers and birds or landscapes, the pictures are full of rhythm and liveliness, just like the celebrated painter Zhang Daqian said: “Simply elegant and neat in creating natural wonderfully”. It is convincing that his art of calligraphy and painting will surely be passing down as treasure in the human art repository for thousands of years, generation to generation.

Fan Chang Tien lived abroad for a long time, but never forgot where he came from and where his roots were. He promoted Chinese culture as a natural mission. He has offered free lessons for decades and has unreservedly imparted the essence of Shanghai style freehand to the majority of art lovers. He has established a new style for ink painting and is a model and pride among overseas Chinese. Mr. Fan is already full of peaches and peaches, and many disciples are also shining in the art world. The fact proves once again that Mr. Fan Chang Tien is a scholar of calligraphy and painting with great love.

Mr. Fan Chang Tien's art exhibition in China was a complete success, attracting more than 100 central media to report. His artistic value is taking boarder acceptance and appreciation by calligraphy and painting enthusiasts and connoisseurs. I believe that the late Mr. Fan's art exhibition in Singapore is bound to be a complete success and art is evergreen!
