    Art Description:

    Since ancient times, it has been said that our ancestors painted oriental paintings or wrote calligraphy with ink and brush primarily for spiritual and mind cultivation. Whenever I create oriental paintings, I feel that the mind becomes calm and I am immersed in the work just as ink soaks into paper. This is perhaps because the artist's intentions are honestly expressed with the brush. Unlike other types of art, oriental paintings do not fall short of expectations, but always produce better results than expected. Perhaps the simple materials such as ink, brush and paper act as a factor that make the work more immersive.

    This work was expressed with an orchid as the subject. Orchid has been used as a subject for literary paintings and became one of the four gracious plants along with plum blossom, chrysanthemums and bamboo. Here, the orchid represents nobility and adherence of principles.

    Medium Used: Ink on paper
