I always wanted to to do art that paid homage to my Chinese heritage while connecting it to my American upbringing. Creating art out of paper with western influences allowed me to do just that. Although I love and will continue my paper art I do have other styles I want to express that paper as a medium cannot portray as well as ink as a medium. Often found in the early works of Asian art paintings using ink and water were the mainstays of origins of art in Asia. I wanted to create something similar with the boldness of original coloring of black and red without the tonal difference as those ancient arts. Using modern and ancient techniques POW INK will display the boldness of ink.
