Can you imagine that all the hyiroglyphs on this picture mean one and the same word - "painting(a noun)"?!
But they do!

These are several different writtings used in Chinese calligraphy at different times.
In few days I'll write more about each of them.

Why is calligraphy connected with Wu Xing painting? In Wu Xing painting as well as in traditional Chinese painting the artist usually indicates what is shown on the picture by signing it with an hyiroglyph or several hyiroglyphs comprising a phrase. For example, he can write hyiroglyph "flower" if he paints a flower. Or hyiroglysh "dragon" if he paints a dragon. But as in Wu Xing painting you operate with different types of brushstrockes you may need different types of writing for the hyiroglyph you use to make it suit the general style of your picture!

  1. Hi Daria! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. This style of painting looks complicated. Have you ever visited linesandcolors.com? He features Russian artists from time to time. Your background here is beautiful.

    1. Oh, not at all,it is not complicated comparing to more classical approaches towards painting :) For example, over 3000 people who has studies in our school in Moscow so far succeeded, though most of them has never painted before. Have you seen this video about Wu Xing http://wuxingpainting.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-way-to-interact-with-reality-art-of.html? Maybe it seems complicated in words and pictures until you haven't tried it:) Thanks for the link, it is interesting to examine!
