NTU honours calligraphy artist Pan Shou

SINGAPORE: The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has honoured one of Singapore's most respected calligraphy artists, Pan Shou.

A symposium was held at Hwa Chong Institution to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Mr Pan.

Mr Pan, who passed away in 1999, was regarded as the best calligrapher and Chinese poet in Singapore.

Speaking at the conference, Mr Pan Yao Ming, Chief Editor of Hong Kong's Ming Pao Monthly, said Pan Shou is not just a national treasure of Singapore, but one of all Chinese around the world.

He also suggested setting up a memorial hall so that future generations can continue to appreciate his works.

Mr Pan's daughter, Ms Pan Xiao Fen said she is touched that the community still remembers her father.

Mr Pan's works will be displayed at NTU's Chinese Library for a month until end-April.
