A New Way to Interact with Reality

The art of calligraphy in Japan is called “Sodo,” which translates as “The Path of the Letter.” For me Wŭ Xíng painting is the “path of the brush and paint,” “the path of the painting;” “the path of drawing.”
It wasn’t that long ago that I received the gift of Wŭ Xíng from my teacher, but even over the last five years painting has changed me dramatically. I understood from the start that Wŭ Xíng was more than just painting, and couldn’t even imagine how deep and rich of a practice it was. I’m not afraid to call Wŭ Xíng a unique method of spiritual and psychophysical development.

Works of students who visited the workshop about poppys, carried our by Nataly Kotova in Wu Xing School of Painting (Moscow).
This technique is a bit unusual. It is done over a thick layer of gouache painting and water. The word "gouache" translates from Italian as a "wet moor", so they used the opportunity to make thick untransparent layers of this paint.
