These ink paintings by Taiwanese artist Jungshan are evocative of the beautiful calligraphy you’d find in predominantly Asian locales. Jungshan harnesses Chinese ink as her main medium, but rather than being restricted to the bindings of traditional artwork, she uses the beautifully rich fluid in contemporary ways. In fact, she often combines Chinese ink with digital rendering techniques to produce the images you’re currently sifting through, amalgamating the best of centuries-old and modern day illustrative styles.
Jungshan frequently depicts Asian subjects, but considers her drawing technique to be Western. Her illustrations often have a melodramatic sensibility, though she’s also highly capable of producing badass visuals of warriors. Her latest paintings have begun to incorporate more color, though she’s best known for blowing people’s minds with her black and white images.
