[Shenzhen] Folk artist displays pyrography (till May 24)
Latest Updated by 2007-05-21 10:05:32

Nearly 100 pyrography works by folk artist Wang Heming are on display at Guan Shanyue Art Museum until Thursday (May 17).

Pyrography, a traditional form of Chinese folk art which first began and prospered during the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220) in a region near Changzhou, East China's Jiangsu Province, is created by leaving the traces of hot iron on the surface of bamboo, wood or paper. Combs decorated with the art and used by imperial court ladies have been found there.

Wang, in his 60s, was born in a family familiar with the pyrography tradition. He first began to learn the art in 1963 while a university student and developed the art by adding colors to the paintings. His works are being shown in six series at the exhibition, including portraits, landscapes, animals, flowers as well as calligraphy.

Wang has also created a portrait of late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping especially for the occasion. His works have also been shown at the National Museum of China.
