Abstract/Artist Statement

The Traditional art of China

The traditional art of China originated from the Neolithic Period, with calligraphy, music, paper-cutting, painting, and opera as the major representative arts. The heritage of traditional Chinese art is extremely rich. Traditional food and clothing are all great creations with thousands of years’ accumulation, embodying the rich culture of an ancient civilization of 5000 years. In addition, they are all precious treasures of the Chinese nation and of all mankind. Now, traditional Chinese art is loved and appreciated by more and more people across the world with its rich local flavor, profound artistic value and vibrant historical content.

My watercolors represent the traditional culture of China, including blue and white porcelain, Chinese tea, Chinese opera, Chinese Lotus Flower, Chinese opera and Chinese lanterns. Watercolor is a kind of painting that uses water to blend pigments.

My project uses watercolor paintings to express the cultural characteristics of different Chinese arts so that my audience can have a better understanding of Chinese culture.
