The Chinese Arts Spoken in English, for English Speaking Students. “It makes sense!”

chinese art The Chinese Art Channel explained in Plain English, for English Speaking People.
Someone recently complained to me that most Chinese Art Channels on YouTube are all in full spoken Chinese. “What use is this to me. It’s useless. I speak English like everyone else in the West.”
This is a dilemma and a short-sightedness of those irresponsibly handling what is supposed to be an international arena of shared leisure and spiritual pass-time but moreover, a way of life. on the other hand, you can at least watch the method, though I admit, many Chinese Art videos spent long periods of time explaining things about the brush, its handling and so on, for long long periods of time, all in full blasting Chinese.
I am as clueless as anyone else when it comes to such education but at least the Chinese can benefit from this. I hope anyway. There are many languages in China. The on commonality is the Written language.
Chinese Bamboo Painting Education for English Speaking Students.
A little lesson in Bamboo Representation in China. I ama lways intrigued with the degree of variance one can find even in spontaneous painting Chinesewise with bamboo.
It is singularly one of the most painted plants of China.
Here is lesson TWO about the Symbology and attitude towards Chinese Bamboo.

How to paint a Chinese Peony – Yang Oshi – One Thousand Days. Chinese Silk, Bird and Flower Painting

chinese painting Yang Oshi – One Thousand Days Of Study. Chinese Silk Painting & Bird and Flower Painting.
Yang O-hsi has been our inspiration ever since we first saw some of her works in 2008 in Guanghwa London Chinatown. And despite the fact that we only originally thought we would try Chinese Calligraphy it has grown into a fight to learn the Chinese Arts, History, Philosophy and the Masters Ancient Spiritualities.
Yang O-hsi is worth celebration. Her videos are rare in Europe, sadly. Probably the one we have here is about the only one in Europe. Hopefully we can change that.

Multi-Purpose Chinese Calligraphy Brushes (Part 1)

chinese calligraphy http://cgi.ebay.com/10-CHINESE-CALLIGRAPHY-WATER-COLOR-BRUSH-/390278627445?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ade6b4075

These brushes made by Mr. Li Gang in China meet the criterion of good brushes – pointy, even, round, and resilient ( 尖齊圓健 ). These are the brushes I personally use for YouTube videos, teaching, and public events since 2007.

Mr. Robert Bo sold them at U.S. $1 each as of 2007-2008. The new imports (available in Janauary 2011) will be slightly higher in prices with more choices of products made by Li Gang.

The brush maker Mr. Li Gang ( 李剛 or 李刚 ) is a relative of the famous brush maker Zou Jielong ( 鄒節龍 or 邹节龙 ) whose reputation is highly esteemed in China. Their brushes share some similarities. (In China, many people have the same names as 李刚. So please don’t confused.)

I provide the info and writing videos as educational resources to acquire supplies and tools for Chinese calligraphy and painting.

Inquiry or direct order: Robert Bo (972) 758-7238 in Dallas, Texas and mention Li Gang’s brushes.

Due to Robert’s teapot business

calling is the most convenient and fastest way to reach him. Robert will not know how to answer very specific technical questions regarding brushes.

There are over 1,000 items not listed on Robert’s forbiddencity2008 e-Bay store. The best way to look for unlisted items, arrange international shipping, or purchase wholesale quantities is to call Robert between 12 – 8 PM, daily, Texas time.

Shopping for Four Treasures: http://www.art-virtue.com/links/index.htm#4

Joshua Hough’s Disclaimer:
1. I do not guarantee the quality of each individual brush (brushes are all hand made “individually” – no productions by machines), nor the price changes and availability. Many Chinese schools in the U.S. have ordered large quantities of these inexpensive and quality brushes, so I am not responding to any availability issues.
2. I do not sell any of those brushes from my inventory.
3. I do not take commissions in any form.

I provide the information in this video solely for practitioners of Chinese Calligraphy and painting to compare the selection and shopping of the supplies and tools.
