What is Chinese Painting?

Chinese painting, known as "Guóhuà," is a venerable art form that dates back to the Neolithic age. It's a dance of subtlety and strength, where every brushstroke carries the weight of history and every ink wash speaks a language of its own. Unlike Western painting, it's not just about replicating the world on paper but about capturing its essence, its spirit.

In this art form, artists use brushes, ink, and rice paper or silk to create landscapes, floral scenes, and portrayals of animals that are more than just depictions; they are expressions of the artist's inner world, philosophical insights, and a deep connection with nature.
