Michael Goedhuis, presented two panels 96″x48.5″ by Wei lilang

The Avantgarde Chinese artist has been at the forefront of contemporary ink paintings. The two panels “Along the Vivid Outlines of the Ages[d Ridge, a Wild Stream Splashes  and the Deer Flee in Shock” are made of ink and acrylic on paper. The black on the gold background is so striking and decorative!
