Chinese painting, by its appearance, shows us tints of water and ink; but inside it is all the culture, wisdom and knowledge that rushed to resonate with the spirit.
The process underway is as follows : first, the representation of the object; then its interpretation and finally its overcoming; in the end, it is no longer the painted object, but the translation of thoughts, of philosophy of the artist. This is the true spirit of Chinese painting.
