The truthful Being of the mysterious Orient
The cognitive reason in Qi Baishi's Chinese art
I went to the Artwork Exhibition of the Chinese painter, Qi Baishi, also known as Qí Huáng and Qí Wèiqīng.
The subjects of his paintings include almost everything, commonly animals, scenery, figures, toys, vegetables, and so on. (source: wiki/Qi_Baishi)
Scratching ZhongKui's Back: "Not itchy in the lower part, but he scratches the lower part; not itchy in the upper side, but he scratches the upper side; you are not me, how can you know my feelings?"
He theorized that "paintings must be something between likeness and unlikeness, much like today's vulgarians, but not like to cheat popular people". (source: wiki/Qi_Baishi)
In his later years, many of his works depict mice, shrimp or birds. (source: wiki/Qi_Baishi)
