Lan Zenghui is known for producing large-scale—often monumental—abstract ink paintings. Lan draws on the Chinese painting tradition, using only black ink on Xuan paper, but diverges in his pursuit of individual emotional expression. Using varying densities of ink, and sometimes splashing directly onto the paper, Lan produces marks that convey a range of complex emotions. Favoring a freehanded approach to the brushstroke, Lan launched a “power brush” movement with his colleagues in 2000 to promote the natural sense of motion and power in ink brush.
