Traditional Chinese Black Ink Bamboo Wall Scroll

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

In Southern China, bamboo is very important as it is used to build houses, small bridges, and is even used for day to day things like chopsticks.

Bamboo has a deeper meaning in Chinese culture. Bamboo represents the aspects to a true noble gentleman. Bamboo is straight (honest) and Chinese people also believe that bamboo represents the modesty, strength, and never gives up because it continues to grow taller and taller. All of the traits of a good man.


About the artist...

The artist's name is línyuán (lín yuán), but his pen name is tínghuá (tíng huá)

The artists pen name means "Magnificent Courtyard" which may seem strange, but naming yourself after something good is normal for pen names in China.

Lin Yuan

The artist puts the finishing touches on some artwork

lín yuán was born in Liuzhou Town in Guangxi in 1975. By Chinese standards, this makes him a very young artist. But he has already received acclaim in Liuzhou as a member of the Liuzhou Artist Council. His work has also been seen a published book of Chinese artwork from Guangxi Province.

He tries to paint in styles that might have been common during the Qing and Ming Dynasties of China. I've seen similar bamboo artwork in Chinese art history museums from that period, and I think he's done a great job of emulating the style of that period. Of course, his is willing to try new things, as one of the bamboo pieces he created included a plum blossom in the background.


About the art...

This is a freehand style painting using black Chinese ink on xuan paper (rice paper) mounted to a beautiful handmade silk scroll.
