Su Shi is recognized as a great master of literary and artistic attainments in thousands of years of history in China. He has made great achievements in poetry, calligraphy, painting and other fields. As the first of the “Four Masters of the Song Dynasty” in the field of calligraphy, Su Shi carried out extraordinary calligraphy art practice. He formed his own distinctive and unique calligraphy theory after Wang Xizhi and Wang Xianzhi, and became the representative of traditional literati calligraphers with superb literary accomplishment and unique calligraphy art, which constantly promoted the development of new calligraphy style of advocating imagery in the Song Dynasty. Meanwhile, it has a particularly far-reaching impact on the later generations. Based on this, this paper will explore Su Shi's calligraphy aesthetics.
