About 'Tao' Chinese Painting ArtWork
Standard Size: 40cm x 30cm ≈ 15.7" x 11.8"
A freehand style of Chinese painting-Taoism / Tao: Drinking and Writing in Solitude. This is a typical theme representing ancient Chinese hermits, many of whom hided in the mountain to lift their profile and could possibly return to society one day if he’s charged with important position by the imperial government.
In another sense, those hermits are also practicing the principles of Taoism-action through non-action, naturalness, simplicity, spontaneity, and the Three Treasures: compassion, moderation, and humility.
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
