Michael Schaffer, Niina Niskanen, Mario Ortiz Martinez, Karen Jacobs, Mukul Sharma, Deepti Tripathi, Bertrand Beaufour, Otar Chakvetadze, Walther Von Krenner offering original Ink Paintings artworks. Literati painting also known as ink wash painting was invented in East Asia and the Chinese used black ink to perfection. History suggests that the Shan Shui style existed during the 5th century. It was then further developed during the Tang dynasty and Wang Wei is generally credited to taking this process further by applying color to ink paintings. During the Chinese Song Dynasty to the 13th century ink wash painting was further developed into a more polished style. Ink paint is usually used on Japanese washi paper or Chinese xuan paper. Both are very absorbent to the ink and thus a perfect material. Silk has also been used for some ink wash paintings. Mainly used in China, Korea and Japan this technique has also gained popularity in the Western World and many modern artists use this ancient technique for their artworks.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Michael Schaffer - Exploring the realms of color, texture, drama, and feelings are the main ingredients of my art work. To inspire the viewer to deal with the issues presented to him is my goal. To inspire the viewer to interpret and react is my passion. I hope you have been inspired... or at least have an opinion. Art and life have many of the same ingredients for us to enjoy....

    Niina Niskanen - Often my art is a reflection of my state of mind. I like to fill the surface with delicate patterns and textures. The colors to be rich and deep but there also needs to be emotion, movement, something that catches the eye. Things that speak to my are probably different that the things that speak to the viewer because we are all too different and I donA't want to reveal too much. Art is all about experience and for me as an artist, it is also about personal growth, the journey. ...

    Mario Ortiz Martinez - Mario Ortiz M. is a mexican artist living in Chihuahua, Mexico. My way of working is free, wild, spontaneous, many times a fruit of desperation and anxiety. It starts in a imperative moment of the day, no idea in my mind, in most cases is an irrational desire of painting and nothing more. Probably I have images that are stored in my imagination, or messages, or traces in my ADN of people of past eras. The paintings made in this way can be considered as Historic Landscapes of the mind, because they are reproductions of the influential ideas that are formed by unknow people who was consumed by suffering, doubts an desperation or characters in the top of the glory, erotic extasis, serenty, indiference or joy. The style of the paintings can best be described as wild impressionism. Sometimes they are more figurative, at other times fully abstract. Colour is very important for me the alchemy of colour. This defines for me the atmosphere of a painting. Usually I work in only a layer, tryng to capture the fire of a first unthinked idea. I let myself be guided automatically by the forms and colours that develop during the process ...

    Karen Jacobs - I have always been a nurturer. After raising a family and caring for my disabled mother for eight years, I now nurture using inks. My creative process is akin to preparing a delicious pot of stew. Thrown into the pot are assorted ingredients, vivid colors and unique mediums. I donaEURtmt use a recipe, so my pot of stew never turns out the same That organized chaos is what fuels my art. Each piece I create is unique and nourishes the artistic soul. I studied under watercolor artists Barbara Marlin-Coole and Susan Adams in Petaluma, California. After moving to Arizona in 2008, I studied with Alice Van Overstraeten from Sun Lakes. My art is displayed in New Mexico at Galleria Tamaya at the Hyatt Regency, Yucca Art Gallery in Old Town Albuquerque and Weems Art Gallery. I now live in Placitas, New Mexico where I have a small art studio. Retired from the workforce, I am able to devote more time to art. My recent passion is ink on paper in a loose, free-style form. My scenes of the New Mexico area are noteworthy for their vivid colors and imaginative portrayals of the landscape. ...

    Walther Von Krenner - Before I studied in Asia, Picasso and Gauguin had a great influence on my thinking. Later I admired the ideas and importance of Pollocks action painting. At this point in my journey Liu Kuo Sung, Chang Dai Chien, Fu Baoshi and Zao Wuki artists mostly unknown to the average Westener have had a great influence on my work. I am attempting to synthesize the style and spirit of their work into a new style with the same power, energy and feeling without copying their work or trying to repeat something that has been done already. ...
