Black willowy trees in the winter with red tops; snow covered clearing in the background with a single horned deer.
This buoyant and effervescent print was achieved using multiple blocks and oil based inks. The artist often chooses to depict forests and farmlands in an apparently naÃ¯ve manner, however achieving his effects using considerable skill and flair. Liu Chunjie trained at Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts in North Eastern China.
â€œCreating an artwork should be like this: finish it in a delightful and carefree mood, retain oneâ€™s natural instincts and set loose the wings of oneâ€™s imagination â€“ let them fly and driftâ€. - Liu Chunjie
