This week of December 17, 2012, I have been a visiting artist at the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts. My friend, artist Chen Qi, whom I have exhibited with in several survey exhibitions in China and Europe, invited me to visit his studio. Chen Qi’s work in printmaking is the most fascinating I have seen in China, and I would say, anywhere. Using large, custom made sheets of hand-made paper, Chen prints by rubbing ukiyo-e style using water based inks without printing press. Each print presented here was produced applying over 100 individual woodblocks. He pulled out many of his prints and blocks. It was just wonderful to see this great work in person.
