Bird & Flower

According to Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower painting covers flowers, plants, birds, fish, insects, and pets. Typically, the painting is not merely a description of the subject, but rather shows personality or ideal. I have created various styles of bird-and-flower paintings - often inspired by masters' graceful brushstrokes, poems, and nature.

Mountain & Water

In Chinese Brush Painting, landscape painting literally means "mountain and water". Usually, the painting is not a precise depiction of a scenery, but an expression of an imaginary world. Often times, it describes an escape from the unpleasant real life or a dreamland.

Each Chinese characters is a pictograph, composed of parts that may represent physical objects or abstract notions. There is an old saying "calligraphy and painting are homologous". The artworks here are of wild-cursive style.
