About Zen Art
2014-04-16
About 520 years ago during the period of the Southern Dynasties and during the reign of Emperor Liang, India’s Bodhi Bodhidharma came to China and Zen Buddhism began in China. The Chinese people integrated their own culture and thought with Buddhism. The ideas of Chinese Zen culture, have had a profound impact on Chinese culture and art. Zen painting is the work of art both in a Buddhist monastery by a monk painter and by a painter practicing at home. The realm of these general works includes the empty static of innocence; simplicity, straightforwardness; fun days, impressionistic feelings; inspiration and thought. Other characteristics of the art may be annoyance in original life and pressure which produces abandon or frank thinking; people physically and mentally clean and pleasant showing no trouble in facing life.

After Zen was introduced into Japan in the 1192 years, it developed and grew into Japanese Zen. Japanese Zen quickly penetrated into various aspects of the Japanese culture and produced the formation of a nation of Zen Buddhism worship. Gradually, Japanese Zen painting began and became popular, the most famous Zen masters were Master Hakuin and Master Suzuki Zen. From their schools and training Zen art spread to the West. With this movement, Buddhism has become better understood around the world and Zen Art has become a world art.

Mr. Gu specializes in Chinese ink landscape and Zen paintings. His ambition and life goal is to establish an international Zen Art development to ensure Zen Art’s prosperity and appreciation for generations to come.


Zen Painter-Yi-Xiong Gu

YiXiong, a current famous Zen Lay Buddhist, loves to discuss philosophy, and his favorite is calligraphy and painting. His paintings integrate with beautiful Western theory. His specialty in style of painting is a blend of Western and Chinese aesthetic principles. His paintings are simple, clear, straightforward and vast and pristine beauty. They contain the beauty of “real & simple”, perhaps because he was born next to the Yellow River. He has the characters what Great North Westerner’s should have: strong, generous and real. Within the Chinese painting continental, his digs a new path and has a different character. He is the front-line inventor and pioneer of the current traditional painting . I wish YiXiong to continue to work hard and climb up to the peak of Art! And success!

-Li Zhi-Long, president of China Zen Art Academy
