2021/10/05
China Cultural Center in Den Hang




Spring Fantasy 2021:Foreword by Zhou Lesheng
 

On 29 September, Spring Fantasy 2021: A Healing Journey Through Mountains and Waters presented a special ink art workshop with exhibition curator Mr Zhou Lesheng, who introduced the gradual evolution of pictorial symbols into Chinese writing, from which the magnificent art of calligraphy and painting emerged. Afterwards, Mr Zhou demonstrated calligraphy and ink painting, giving an insightful interpretation of the important theory of "calligraphy and painting come from the same source (书画同源)". More than 20 art lovers from The Hague, Amsterdam and Rotterdam participated in the workshop and experimented with their own Chinese painting and calligraphy works.
