Ink Painting Today—2009 Shanghai New Ink Art Exhibition | | 中国艺志

Just like a tatoo isn’t it?!
Old themes painted on a paper body, a surprising mixture of tradition and modernity .

Peng Wei (female artist born in Chengdu, Sichuan, 1974; lives in Shangai) used to paint ancient scenes on silk or paper robes . She goes further here, suggesting that our history is imprinted on our skin. Just like a tatoo.

An exhibition in Brussels (‘Attitudes, Female Art in China’, La Centrale Electrique Place Sainte Catherine 44 Brussels) shows her new papier mache painted sculptures (till January 24).
