Description This is my interpretation of the origin of the Chinese word for Chicken . From the pictorial seal script, I turned it back into a design of a chicken. Chinese writing dates back to over 5000 years ago. Chinese characters evolved from pictographs to more abstract ideograms to the modern-day character, which bears a slight resemblance to its pictographic origins. The characters are divided into 3 main categories : pictographs , ideograms , phonograms. You can see the progression of the Chinese word for chicken with my other piece of art: http://www.imagekind.com/Chinese-Calligraphy-for-Year-of-the-Rooster_art?imid=76a1dca1-8885-4f46-a60b-f4136e9174bb'Chicken/rooster' is a pictograph. It has evolved from the pictorial oracle bone script, to the pictorial seal script, to the modern day character. http://www.oystudio.com/evolutionwebsmall.jpgThis is my interpretation of the origin of the Chinese word for Chicken.

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.
