12/06/2018: International Case Study of China - Chinese Bamboo Paintings

11.06.2018 - Chinese Week - Bamboo Painting

For anyone who is familiar with east Asian art, one of the most familiar motifs is bamboo. Asian painters have painted bamboo scroll paintings for many centuries.


It is one of the most popular types of Chinese brush painting. Bamboo stalks have been painted by all kinds of people ranging from schoolchildren to world-famous artists for many centuries.


Bamboo is one of the most common plants in all of Asia and has many uses. It has a simplistic beauty that makes it appealing in artwork. Images of bamboo blossoms, bamboo blowing in the wind, and more are always beautiful and relaxing to look at - we hope you enjoy our creations!
