the technic of Sumi-e was born in the 8th century in China and developped in Japan. The calssical Sumi-e represents landscapes or bamboos and is part of the zen culture. Having a sumi-e painting on the wall gives calm and relax the house and people who are watching. The painter is drawing the minimum of lines to allow the mind to finish the painting. I try to mix this old japanese technic with the european technic. I discovered this technic in 2002 and i started to search by myself how to draw the perfect line without knowing there is no ending.
