Artist's Description

Wild plum is considered to be one of “four gentlemen” of eastern art, meaning four most popular and noble themes that represent main seasons as well as most important human virtues.

Chinese plum, also called meihua is a favorite theme of eastern art and poetry. It blooms in early spring, sometimes having to endure chill and snowfall, so this bright and delicate blossom has been celebrated as a symbol of late winter / early spring and striving new life.

This ink wash paining is inspired by most dramatic Chinese and Japanese works. It represents intricacy of life as well as its inherent vital optimism. Stamp featured on the painting is the author’s “signature”, carved in tensho calligraphy characters.

The style used is also known as sumi-e and suibokuga.
Materials used: rice paper, Chinese black dry ink, vermilion ink and animal hair brush.
