I call Master Zeng “Uncle Zeng”, he’s one of my best friends’ father. Watching Uncle Zeng paint was a fantastic experience! He’s focused and ambitious! Every line, every drop of ink he creates on the xuan Paper shows how talented a painter he is. He showed me some skills I’ve never seen before. It was such a great lesson!
Not only does he paint on xuan paper, he paints on ceramics as well! It’s not easy to find such a well-experienced, traditional brush painter that also paints on ceramics! Most of the ceramics paintings are made by modern machines now, mass-produced. It was such an honor to see how 100% handmade ceramic arts were created!
