Bamboo - Safe and Sound

Bamboo Safe and Peaceful - White Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

The Chinese title written on this artwork means "Bamboo [the sign of a] Safe and Peaceful [place]". It's better-translated as "Bamboo - Safe and Sound". Also written on the painting is an indication of the year painted (2011) and the artist's signature. Sometimes, the context of this title can mean to send a message home to your loved ones to tell them you are safe in your travels (people used to write such notes on bamboo slips before paper was invented).


About the Art:

This is a simplistic painting style, but it also incorporates a lot of detail. This painting really mimics the style of Chinese artwork that has been around for thousands of years.

The artist used some special "watermark xuan paper" for this artwork, which gives it a very unique look. In Chinese, this is know as "water paper". This name comes from the fact that embedded in the paper is a visual texture that mimics the look of waves of water. You have to see it to understand, but trust me, you'll like it. It gives the artwork a certain antique and classic look.

This artwork is completely hand-painted, and is mounted to a handmade silk wall scroll in our workshop.


About the Artist:

The artist's name is WangjianQiu (Wang Jian-Qiu). He lives in Jinan, the capital city of Shandong Province in Northern China (about 5 hours south of Beijing). I was introduced to this artist's work at Qin Xia's studio in Jinan. This artist has been a long time friend of Qin Xia (You may recognize Qin Xia's name from artwork in our flowers and birds category). Wang Jian-Qiu also does some great detailed beautiful woman paintings, and occasionally does some landscapes for us as well.
