Material & Energy:
Special rice paper,Chinese ink, natural mineral colour. Technique: meticulous painting/泼墨写意 All of the materials I use are very specially made and full of good energy. The brush painting technique is highly unique, I paint everything with positive Qi (气).
Spirit of this painting :
In Ancient Greek folklore, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Some legends say it dies in a show of flames and combustion, others that it simply dies and decomposes before being born again.
Scholars have observed analogues to the phoenix in a variety of cultures. These analogues include the Hindu garuda (गरुड) and bherunda (भेरुण्ड), the Russian firebird, the Persian simorgh (سیمرغ), the Georgian paskunji, the Arabian anqa (عنقاء), the Turkic Konrul, also called Zümrüdü Anka ("emerald anqa"), the Tibetan Me byi karmo, the Chinese Fenghuang (鳳凰) and zhu que (朱雀), and the Japanese hō-ō (鳳凰).
A talk with ONLY you :
There is a unique way for everyone to connect with mother nature and this is my way. I see every painting process as a precious meditation and time journey to search philosophy for life. It is motivational to have a conversation with you who are looking at this artwork now. Never forget how special you are. People are too busy to remember it is Ok to slow down and enjoy the view.
This world inspires me:
Creating lucid dream feelings, I was influenced by ancient techniques and modern concepts across countries. It is my honour to be born in a country with a thick and deep cultural background. It gives me the chance to look back to search for inspiration. I was always fascinated by the philosophical concept of BALANCE. Finding the balance between the softness of special rice paper and the hardness of brush is the true meaning of creation. And I believe that it is the key to a home full of happiness. Studying at Swinburne University also inspires me to open my mind, to absorb new ideas and to respect diverse cultures.
It is my honour to invite you to explore a unique spiritual inner world with me through the view of this blooming dream.
Furthermore, it is my pleasure to create unique artwork ONLY for YOU. If you love my art energy and want to have your personalised artwork, why not say hi today?
