Chinese Ink on Rice paper
Chinese Ink, Ink wash painting, also known as literati painting, is an East Asian type of brush painting of Chinese origin that uses black ink—the same as used in East Asian calligraphy—in various concentrations. For centuries, this form of Chinese art was practiced by highly educated scholar gentlemen or literati.
Traditional Asian painting involved essentially the same techniques as calligraphy and done with a brush dipped in black ink or colored pigments. Contemporary Chinese ink painting is often influenced by the western abstract arts, using deconstruction principle, the art taking on stunning mutation into an art form of it own.
