¡°Zen¡± has always been an important subject of Tian Xutong¡¯s creation, but he does not deliberately ¡°draw the zen¡± but naturally expresses his own life concept and life accomplishment in the ¡°zen type¡± ink painting works with Chinese cultural characteristics. In this exhibition, Tian Xutong will take rice paper, pen and ink as the carrier and ¡°zen¡± as the theme of expression and use the ¡°zen¡± ink painting containing the profound traditional culture meaning to convey the unique way of Chinese people to experience life.
