Announcement   NEWS: EVERYTHING 20% OFF ( Price changed. Sale until end of December 2016.) Thank you.

NEWS: Dear Customers, order will be shipped once a week. Thank you.
Vintage black ink is national heritage and legacy, traditionally from China, Japan and Korea (Chinese: 墨; Japanese: 墨; Korean: 먹). It was widely using for ink wash painting and calligraphy. Since long time ago, people make ink from the ink stick, it has to be continuously ground against an inkstone with a small quantity of water to produce a dark liquid which is then applied with an ink brush.

Nowadays I was trying to conceptualize my ideology into the ink painting, it could be involved lots of subject, it's traditional black ink but I fused with a innovative way, I tried to make it like " Wow what's that?" and I'm very much care about the background story, the theme, the meaning, the philosophy and the idea behind every painting. It makes me fall into contemplation.


Thankfully my original paintings had been sold all over the world to Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, China, Denmark, England, Emirates, France, Greece, Germany, Guam, Hawaii, Hungary, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Indonesia, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Norway, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Slovenia, Switzerland, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and United States ( A - Z)

Absolutely wonderful experience. I had never ordered anything internationally before, so I was a little worried about the package getting lost in the mail, but Eden offered wonderful customer service from start to finish. He let me know what was happening at every step of the way, and he even let me change my shipping address at one point. The painting actually arrived sooner than expected, and it's even more beautiful in person (which is saying a lot). Highly recommend. Thank you, Eden!

About

The Flowers of Paradise - Manjusaka

Part 1

(Without yesterday, without today, this is part of me.)

The Real Bio

Before 1986:
My mother she didn't fall in love with my father, she goes straight to get married, it's blindness marriage. That's China. She was 16, my father was 36.


1986:
28th November
I was born in a small village next to the sea in Jieshi Town, Lufeng, Guangdong province. Where people speaking min-nan dialect.
I'm the youngest one of 4 boys in the family.

1992:
First year of school.
Sometimes I went to school by barefoot, but not because I don't have shoes.

This year my mother was pregnant again, she was over-stayed in Hong Kong then gave a birth to a baby girl in the A&E Hospital.

1994:
Illegally immigrate to Hong Kong by small boat when I was 8, the route was from Shekou Port, Shenzhen to Lau Fau Shan, Hong Kong. Not successfully, I was jailed with my mother and brothers in Victoria Prison for a couple of days. Then deported back to China by bus. The same year my father died of workplace accident in 50 (He's Hong Kong permanent resident).

1995:
Second attempting illegally immigrate to Hong Kong when I was 9 (The same route). Successfully, my great aunt (the wife of my father's elder brother) hired a British lawyer Brook Bernacchi fought with the immigration department, however the lawyer didn't even get 1 dollar paid.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brook_Bernacchi

The same year I was entering Catholic Primary School by the arrangement of Education Department. Adapted very hard of the living in Hong Kong especially education system. (5 years in primary school.)

There was one time very magical, when I was standing alone in front of a supermarket, a woman came to ask me if someone is my father? I said yes, then she bought me a bag of chocolate and candy to go home.

1997:
July 1st, watching the fireworks from the TV. Hong Kong was being an administrative special region after the British colonized, I was too young to know what's meaning behind of the fireworks.

2003:
The Secondary Christian school drop me out when I was 16, due to I failed my final exam. (9th Grade).
I made myself going to Clothing Industry Training Authority for 2 years, to be trained working for the industry in the future, however I didn't chase any profession related to the course.


2005:
Short-term living in Beijing, capital of China. I realized I was truly infatuated by the northern China winter and the northern Chinese people speaking Mandarin with a very special accent.


2006:
Traveled through five Southeast Asian country alone when I was 19.
First time on flight from Bangkok to Beijing by Egypt Air, I felt extremely nervous and excited onboard.

2007:
First time traveled to Europe from Beijing. It was a very enlightening trip, I learned so much from friends.

Ever since the first trip to France, I fell in love with Paris. Keep myself thinking of Ernest Hemingway might be right, once he said "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you."

2008:
I was 22. My mother died at 47 when I was traveling in Munich, Germany. Could be the most weaknesses year of my life, I did not want to live in Hong Kong anymore, it was simply because inevitably everywhere I go remind me of my parents. The same year I made a hard decision for leaving this sadness place - move to Africa and secretly I swear to myself never come back to Hong Kong again.


2009:
After some times I work for a restaurant group in Soho Hong Kong, I resigned my job then I went to Paris.
Short-term lived in Paris, Lyon, Toulouse France and I was doing domestic travel to Marseille, Montpellier, Cannes, Antiques and Nice.


2010:
Leaving France in January, traveled intensively through North Africa and West Africa.(Tunisia, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso)

Short-term lived in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Homesickness attacked, flew back to Hong Kong from Ouagadougou via Paris.
After back to Hong Kong, I adopted a Cat from a French friend who back to Reunion.

The same year I asked a lawyer to make a Deed Poll to change my name to "Eden Some" permanently, I gave up my old name that it wasn't my parents named me. Despite my name is " Eden", whereas I'm not Christian and I do not have any religion.

Spending my 24th birthday in Bandung Indonesia, the first time I saw 2 volcano in my life.

2011:
When I was 24, I launched Manjuzaka online gallery in ETSY. Studio Hong Kong based.
Short-term lived in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
First time riding horse in my life, Giza, Egypt.
Back to Rabat, Morocco.
