春意正濃

The Fullness of Spring

Birds in Perched on Loquat Tree - Chinese Wall Scroll close up view

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

This artwork features two birds perched on the branch of a loquat tree.

The artist's title for this piece is 春意正濃 (Chūn yì zhèng nóng). The meaning is something like the completeness of spring, or in regards to how positive, concentrated and full the springtime is with life.

The inscription indicates that this artwork was painted in 2011 by Jian-Qiu at the Qing-Feng studio.


About the Art:

This painting has a simple muted background style but incorporates a lot of detail in the foreground subject of the artwork. This painting is a style of Chinese artwork that has been around for thousands of years.

This artwork is completely hand-painted and is mounted to a handmade silk wall scroll in my Beijing 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.

Gary's random little things about China:

Crossing the Street: Human Frogger in China

If you are from my generation, you may remember the video game called "Frogger". It involved crossing a busy road while narrowly dodging cars and truck, often both in front of and behind you at the same time.

Well you can play real live Frogger every time you cross the street in China. It is perfectly normal to cross a four or six-lane road, one lane at a time. You stand motionless on the white, dashed line between lanes as cars and trucks whiz by you on both sides with only inches to spare. When the next lane is clear, you advance (there is no retreat in this game, that could get you killed, since drivers in China would never expect that).

If you did this in America, drivers would come to a screeching halt and think you were crazy (they might even tell you so, using colorful words and hand gestures). It is simply a different culture, or rather a different way of doing things in modern Chinese culture.
