Welcome to Ming Franz Studio
Welcome to my studio where you will experience paintings of various styles from traditional Chinese brush paintings and watercolor with my creation of splash ink and watercolor fusion where East meets West.
I have studied both Eastern and Western paintings, and have experienced many different kind of media and techniques. I learned what I like the best is from the 90's. I discovered Splash Ink painting and fell in love. Since then it has become my style of painting. I did not follow the Chinese tradition, I added watercolor and watercolor techniques. It has become a true East meets West style in art. This type of art has been in my mind for a long time and now it has become a reality.
What is splash Ink With Watercolor?
"Splash Ink with Watercolor" is a blending of Asian black ink and primary watercolors splashed onto layers of Ma (mulberry) rice papers, adding finishing touches from both Eastern and Western traditions. Blending black ink and watercolors produces an abstract which can be variously interpreted. Often the artist must look at the abstract forms and let the colors speak. The creativity is in the mind of the artist. This innovative style of painting expresses an exceptional and contemporary view of nature. Artists can allow themselves to let go of control and enjoy this method of creativity. It is about freedom, creativity and your imagination, finding your inner spirit--letting it work for and through you.
