Chinese Culture Center presents “Wesley Tongson: The Journey,” the artistic journey of a unique Hong Kong contemporary ink artist. His first solo US show in over 20 years will include 23 works, some never before seen. Trained in traditional ink painting, he began to explore with non-brush techniques, such as splash ink painting, ink rubbing and marbling. His work is distinctive and original, especially mature “finger painting” works, where he abandons the brush and creates using only his hands. The exhibit traces his path of artistic development, ending in Tongson’s unmistakable signature style of finger painting.
Guest curated by renowned Asian art scholar and curator Catherine Maudsley.
