Sumi-e landscapes

Sumi-e is an ancient pictorial and calligraphic technique from China that was introduced in Japan thanks to Zen monks in the XIV century. Sumi-e painters try to draw in few elements an idea, poem or landscape in a very characteristic codification of elements and representation.

I begun to experiment with this technique in 2017 and I have developed my own style. This is because of living in Europe and having a complete of different art background in comparison to traditional painters. Working with transportable size of Japanese papers, with Indian ink and in a meditative state of mind, it allows me to work in the nature not leaving any mark or modifying it. I only touch the landscape with the sight. These are issues that worried me much as a land artist. This technique allows me to reduce everything to the basic perception and catching the natural perspective. Simplicity and honesty of the artistic action and creation are relevant virtues I want to put into my work.

My sumi-e paintings where hosted and presented in public for the first time at Centre de la Cultura de l’Oli de Catalunya in October, 2020. Here, I present some of my sumi-e landscapes I have visited. Somehow, being surrounded by nature after meditation enables me to catch the essence of the world like a haiku poet.

You can buy an original sumi-e painting from 50€.
