About Henry Li

 
 
  • Biography
    I was trained in a time-honored tradition when I was a teenager under several Chinese painting masters, and I have been teaching western students Chinese brush painting for 30 years since I came to America in 1987.  I paint on absorbent rice paper or mulberry paper with sumi ink and Chinese watercolors. I like to express my feelings matters in rhythmic brush strokes and try to capture the Ch'i energy of the subject matters such as clouds and mist, trees and flowers, birds and animals. I work tediously to make my paintings to look free and loosening.
