About

About me

"Most of the time, I use Chinese or Japanese paper, specifically manufactured for ink painting or calligraphy. However, I have realised that for certain types of ink painting art, such as martial arts related portraits, paper used by water colour painters seems to be the best choice. Since there are countless types of paper, one can easily mix and match, in order to achieve a desired effect. In this particular case, the water colour painting paper is absorbs water in a very different manner than most of the calligraphy or ink painting paper types, which allows for creating a much more well defined, hence dynamic, line. Colours applied to the art work seem to be more vibrant and less blurred. In addition to this, by application of the so called “dry brush technique”, the strokes become more aggressive and vigorous. Another way to alter one’s work appearance is to use various types of ink. Here my choice is the hardened ink stick, which is a traditional form of ink painting and calligraphy ink. Its abilities are far superior to any other form of ink. Every single ink stick, even from the same factory, may have different proprieties, and behaves differently on the water colour painting paper. It offers me a great spectrum of artistic choices, allows me to experiment, and creat freely according to my needs and imagination.”

I welcome any questions about custom orders, available sizes, delivery times and more.

I am a sumi-e ink painter. Sumi-e or suibokuga painting represents Japanese school of ink painting. Suibokuga is a traditional monochromatic Japanese painting, which belongs to a larger group called Yamato-e (which term is used mostly to describe Japanese painting in general).

I participate in european and international art exhibitions. My works appeared in countries such as France, USA, China, Japan. As a member of International Chinese Calligraphy and Ink Painting Art Society ICCPS Tokyo, Japan. I have multiple chances to participate in various international events.

Since April 2014 I am a member of Sumi-e Society of America, Inc.

As an ink painting teacher I am often invited to organise seminars, lectures and live performances during which various techniques are shown, and knowledge regarding the history of the art of ink painting is passed.

I am an artist and illustrator who often cooperates with related publishing houses and book authors, as well as international magazine in Europe and United States. Being an admirer of the Japanese art and design, my paintings follow the traditional school of ink painting, and I use only traditional tools to create my art.

I am a co-founder of Ink Treasures project. Through Ink Treasures pages together with calligrapher Ponte Ryuurui we present the two sister arts, the art of Chinese and Japanese ink painting and calligraphy. It is very difficult to find a good source of information on calligraphy or ink painting in English. Although the project is in process, there are lot of interesting articles on the history and philosophy of the Chinese and Japanese Calligraphy and Ink Painting.
