“Ink Art” connects to China's 2,000-year-old tradition of ink calligraphy and painting as well as with the world of artist-scholars arranged thematically – the written word, abstraction, landscapes and beyond the brush.
Cecilia Urbina's insight:

Ink art connects to China's 2000 year old tradition of ink calligraphy. Many artist today are influence by Zhang Huan's "Family Tree" (2001), which is a series of 9 photographs of the artist face inked with Chinese words and symbols. The first images shows the artists face with a small amount of words and the last image demonstrates the artist face completely covered to show that his identity is lost in a sea of words. Artists today are creating new ways to use brushes and ink on papers and on individuals.
