Xu Hai is a calligrapher who is active in the present calligraphic community and has high attainments in calligraphy and seal cutting. He also has deeply studied seal character and cursive script. Among these, his works of big-seal style are primitive and crude and probabilistic, all of which have a big effect on his style of seal cutting. Besides, his running & cursive script works have a romantic charm of the calligraphic style of “er-wang” and the characteristics of wild leisure. His works often have unique novelties. Moreover, the classic elegance of the traditional calligraphy and the styles and features of modern calligraphy coexist in the form composition, style of writing and ink style of his works.
