Description This is my wild grass calligraphy for the Chinese character, snake. This is for someone born in the Year of The Snake. Years of the Snake are: 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013 Chinese writing dates back to over 5000 years ago. Snake is a pictograph. The original oracle bone script is a rough drawing of the snake. It has evolved to the modern day character but you can still vaguely see the head on the left and the tail on the right.Artist: Tai Oi YeeWebsite: Oystudio.com
Oi Yee Tai, Canada Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement The two sides of me...
My sumi paintings are essentially monochromatic. I find boundless freedom in expressing myself through different shades of black, white and grey. I love to use minimal strokes capturing the essence while leaving enough white space for the viewer's imagination. (http://www.oystudio.com)
With acrylic, watercolor and oil, I feel like a 4 year old child rolling on the floor coating myself with all the different colors I love. Unlike my Chinese ink paintings, I fill the canvas with so much color that it might be suffocating for you but I am having so much fun I just want to share it with you too.
