About 'Father' Chinese Painting ArtWork
Standard Size: 40cm x 30cm ≈ 15.7" x 11.8"
A freehand style of Chinese painting-figure: Shuai’s father is weeding in the field. In many parts of Chinese countryside, farmers are still using the handmade farming tools like the hoe in Shuai’s father’s hand, which have been used for thousands of years with little innovation.
This is a typical scene of the peasant farmers just wearing the shorts in the scorching sun in summer. And they usually spend whole day weeding for about one acre of crops. There is a well-know Chinese poem named The Peasants every child would learn and recite in primary school to educate them to value food they eat at every meal to respect peasants’ hard work:
At noon they weed with hoes;
Their sweat drips on the soil.
Each bowl of rice, who knows!
Is the fruit of hard toil.
About The Talented Disabled Artist: Shuai Liu
--- an Inspiring Story of Perseverance and Courage
“What should we do now without your brother?” Shuai’s mother asked when his elder brother, the only bread earner of the family was killed by a traffic accident. “You will not be left alone mum. I’ll support you and dad selling my paintings in the future.” Shuai comforted his parents.
Shuai Liu is a budding Chinese painter of traditional Chinese painting fighting cerebral palsy since birth. Confined to his bed and wheelchair in a small backward village in North China, Shuai is self taught in painting and could occasionally receive instructions from some local renowned painters. Shuai paints left-handed on rice paper and mainly works with black and colored ink and uses both the two main techniques in traditional Chinese painting artwork - Shui Mo, freehand or watercolor or brush painting, and Gong Bi, meticulous or court-style painting.
In spite of years of obscurity and the isolation of his village, Shuai has successfully held a small exhibition in his county and won a second prize in an arts competition for the disabled in Hebei Province of China. View More Story
