Zenga

Zenga 禅画 - art of zen painting with calligraphy of poems and sayings.

This collection is dedicated to spontaneity:

  • unprompted works, alla-prima ("at first attempt"), reactions to intense internal impulses;
  • visualizations based on inclinations, unconstrained by tradition;
  • influenced by Zen-Buddhist (禅) or other Eastern styles
    (e.g. Japanese Sumi-e 水墨画, Chinese guóhuà, s.国画;  國畫)
  • minimalist, non-conceptual, highly experimental works.
  • artworks with poetry - haiku or short verses;
  • meditative drawing.
