Shou Pan 潘受

Pan Shou, born in Fujian, China in 1911, was a Chinese calligrapher and poet who made significant contributions to the cultural and educational landscape of Singapore. He was a founding member of the Nanyang University in 1955, and it was only during the later part of his life did his career as a calligrapher and poet flourished.

Pan devoted himself to calligraphy and poetry fully after retirement, continuously honing the craft that he has been practising since he was eight. His calligraphic works depict his observations of politics and society, ideologies, to those inspired by archaic Qin and Han manuscripts. Many of his works could be seen in Singapore, such as at the entrance of the Singapore Art Museum, the masthead of the Chinese newspaper, Lianhe Zaobao. Outside of the country, it can be found at the Confucius Temple in Qu Fu; in the Forest of Steles in Xi’an; on the honorific arch marking the beginning of the ancient Silk Road by the Sea in Quan Zhou; on Huang He Lou in Wuhan; and in the museum of the Great Wall of China.

His works were remarkable, and his contribution to the arts and culture of Singapore has earned him the Cultural Medallion in 1987 and the Meritorious Service Medal in 1994. Pan has such a unique calligraphic style that it is referred to as the “Pan style” by some.
