Leading the reader on a semi-autobiographical journey through this mystical country, the artist takes us from Beijing, over Huangshan, the yellow mountain famous for inspiring many a painter or poet, across the canals of Zhouzhuang, China's first village on water, to Taishan, the most sacred of the Taoist mountains.
Capturing the soul of every object depicted, true to the Taoist philosophy, the artist shows his love for nature in his depiction of China's flora and fauna. This sketchbook explores not only the magnificent landscapes, but also the people and their culture, with chapters devoted to Chinese music, dance, and costumes and a section on calligraphy, an art form in itself.
For art lovers and those enthralled by this magical country, it remains simply to follow the artist's brushstrokes and let yourself be seduced by his images!
