Item description for My Chinese Sketchbook by Fu Ji Tsang...

Through the vibrant watercolors and simple but highly evocative sketches of Fu Ji Tsang, discover an authentic China expressed with emotion and sensitivity. In My Chinese Sketchbook, East meets West as the artist depicts typical scenes from his native country in the original Impressionist-inspired style that has made him famous: from the bustling streets of the cities to the tranquility of the mountains, and from the majestic landscapes to the spiritual temples.

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!
Fu Ji Tsang studied classical art before moving to Paris to study decorative arts. Initially specialized in calligraphy, Tsang has since developed a fascination for the colors of the south of France, inspired by Impressionist painters. Tsang has exhibited his paintings in galleries, and museums across Europe, Asia, and North America.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Chinese Sketchbook?

An Explosion of Color throughout China  Nov 25, 2006
For those who love waterCOLOR, I recommend Fu Ji Tsang's "My Chinese Sketchbook". A veritable explosion of vivid oranges, reds, purples, and blues highlighted with virtually every color accent the eye could see--or imagine. Tsang's sense of balance working with grades of light, shade, and space are a testament to his ability to translate what he sees onto the paper.

This work highlights his depictions of the diverse people and places of China, from Fujian to the Tibetan and Muslim regions. Tsang shows himself able to depict a tribesman's face with painstaking detail (p. 124-125), or an ornate garden and dwelling in what appear to have been just a few misty strokes ("The Humble Administrator's Garden in Suzhou", p.47). It looks to have been an easy feat...but the balance and cohesiveness of each work speak of Tsang's experitise--there is no simplicity in the artist's eye. A real treat!
