Chongqing – Recently, an interview program entitled “Paintings to Connect the Heart of China and Japan-Painter Zeng Qin” was broadcast on Japan’s NHK TV. Zeng Qin improvised an ink painting, “Lotus,” in the program, demonstrating the creative fusion of ink painting and Japanese rock-dyestuff painting, which attracted the attention of many viewers.
“I hope that the respect for life and the pursuit of love and peace can be shown in my works, which can resonate with the audience. I hope to enhance mutual understanding between the people of China and Japan, just like the harmonious fusion of ink painting and Japanese painting,” said Zeng.
Zeng Qin is the eldest daughter of the famous Chongqing painter Zeng Lingfu. She went to Japan to study in 1992, and it has been 30 years since then. Zeng Qin is currently the president of the Japan-China Modern Ink Painting Association, a member of the Japan Artists Alliance, a judge of the International Ink Art Exhibition, and a lecturer in the ink painting classroom of the NHK TV Cultural Center in Japan.
Zeng Qin began studying Japanese painting after going to Japan and combining Japanese painting with traditional Chinese ink painting, gradually forming her unique painting style. Among them, “To see the world in a wild flower” is a common theme in her paintings. She has created many themed works on this concept. She also portrayed crystal-clear water droplets in many pieces, becoming a unique symbol of her works.
In addition, Zeng Qin also opened several ink painting institutions in Japan to teach Japanese students the techniques of ink painting creation. “This is not just a simple promotion of traditional Chinese ink painting in Japan, but also an act of enhancing mutual understanding and friendship between the people of China and Japan through cultural exchanges,” she added.
