Vintage black ink is national heritage and legacy, traditionally from China, Japan and Korea (Chinese: 墨; Japanese: 墨; Korean: 먹). It was widely using for ink wash painting and calligraphy. Since long time ago, people make ink from the ink stick, it has to be continuously ground against an ink stone with a small quantity of water to produce a dark liquid which is then applied with an ink brush.
Nowadays the painter Eden Some conceptualises his ideology and contemporary concept into the ink wash paintings. His work involves a great deal of philosophical matter, a feeling between the traditional and innovation. He concerns himself with the background story and every meaning behind the ink wash paintings. His creations always make him fall into deep contemplation.
