Blow Painting in Guilin

Blow Painting demonstration by the painter Xu Huang in Guilin.

At the entrance of the Ludi cave, the famous painter Xu Huang put up his studio. Since earliest childhood he was enthusiastic about painting and calligraphy. He is a pioneer of the so-called Blow Painting in China. Blow Painting is a technique in which the ink is not applied with a brush, but blown.

The beginning

Unlike other artists, Mr. Xu Huang does not require additional tools such as straws, but he blows the ink only with his lips.
