Sandy found some new art by an artist that certainly has a unique style.
The artist's name is Jiang Feng. He graduated in the 1980's from the Beijing Central Institute of Fine Arts, and has since had a successful career as an artist. His art has been awarded many times in various shows and exhibitions, and he boasts that collectors from Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Canada, and Hong Kong have purchased his work. So I suppose it is my job to introduce his work to the states.
Jiang Feng's style is somewhere between abstract and realistic, but falls into neither category. It is simply his own style. I can tell from looking at his paintings that he does a lot of detail work, and then uses a bit of extra water to "run" the colors and create interesting patterns within the subjects.
He does not title his work, so you are left to your own imagination as to what each painting represents. But that should not be hard, as you can easily appreciate the beauty and subject of each one of his pieces that we will be offering over the next few months.
The Chinese characters and red stamp that you see are the artist's signature.
This is painted on special rice paper with a combination of Chinese black ink and watercolor. We then mounted the artwork to a nice silk scroll, so it's ready-to-hang when you receive it.

Gary's random little things about China:
In the USA and most western countries, when people eat chicken, generally the breast meat and other white meat is preferred over dark meat.
However, in China, it is exactly the opposite.
In fact, check a supermarket in China and you'll find that chicken breasts are the cheapest cuts, while other cuts containing dark meat and bone get top dollar.
You will also find that traditional Chinese people wanting the freshest possible food will buy their chicken alive, and butcher it just before cooking a tasty meal.
And don't be put off by the bones in the chicken that you are served - all the bones, and even the head are usually served together and are seen in Chinese culture as a sign of quality and good taste.
