About 'Bamboo and Plum Blossoms' Chinese Painting ArtWork
Standard Size: 40cm x 40cm ≈ 15.7" x 15.7"
A freehand style of Chinese painting-bamboo and plum blossoms: The postscript reads: “One should be like the bamboo, modest in heart; while one’s character should be like the plum blossom, scent coming from the stem.” (Note: The equivalent phrase for “modest” in Chinese is 虚心, which literally means “hollow in heart.” This accords to the hollow stems of bamboo. )
Bamboo and plum blossoms are frequently the subject in traditional Chinese painting to represent the loftiness in one’s virtue.
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
