Sakura Flowers (cherry blossom) — Original Sumie Ink Art on Vintage Book Paper
Painting on a vintage paper
Size: ~18x15 cm / ~7x6 inches
Moulded on another layer of paper, NOT framed
Typically I paint on hanmade rice paper. But this one is different: I found pages from an old book at a flea market (it looks like a collection of juridical documents from a university, mostly in Latin, dated 18th century) and tried to paint on them! I liked the result very much: the combination of simple japanese flowers (symbolising spring and re-birth, as well as passing nature of the beauty) and old typography looks unusual and intriguing.
I hope it will look great in any interior, being a fusion between old and new, text and picture, East and West. It may also be a unique and unusual gift for an intellectual or an art lover.
The painting is made in Japanese Sumi ink and bears my personal seal (also carved in stone by myself).
