Chinese ink painting prints on canvas and paper by Hong Kong artists Alvin Mak & Dana Shek. These contemporary artworks are created from original paintings, hand drawn textures and ink marks which are composed into modern Chinese ink style artworks. We use traditional techniques used in paintings such as dry brush and wet on wet as well as modern forms of mark making such as creating textures with crumpled paper and unconventional objects. We are inspired by the movement and energy of calligraphy, minimalism and the organic forms of scholar rocks. This series, which is simply titled “Ink”, includes the classic black and white ink art, subtle muted tone on tone colours and colourful, contemporary colour block compositions.
Working with a Hong Kong art consultancy, our “Ink 12003″ & “Ink 12004″ were commissioned for the restaurant Ina.
