Chinese ink painting, a distinct genre in the art world, has strong ties to the cultural and spiritual identities of its origins. This exhibition aims to display the artists' critical perspectives of the modern world, their unique interpretation of historical narratives, and their adept use of ink painting techniques. In their distinctive artistic voice, the artists navigate a path across the metaphorical ink sea, merging various world-views through their creations.
