Artist's Description

Bamboo is regarded by oriental artists as “father of ink wash paining”. It is closest of all to classic calligraphy – every branch an every leaf is a separate brush stroke and so the artist conveys the energetic spirit of the plant as well as his or her own nature.

Bamboo is one of the “four gentlemen” of eastern art, meaning four most popular and noble themes that represent main seasons as well as most important human virtues. It is a symbol of summer and dynamic masculine energy.

This particular painting combines the “positive diagonal” of the rising stem and the lively youthful spirit of young bamboo leafs. 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, and animal hair brush.
