Name Painting is an art form that originated in China. This folk art dates back more than 2,000 years.
Traditionally, Name Painting was used to represent Chinese characters in a person?s name when a gift was needed for special events.
The most popular images in the past for depicting Chinese characters included flowers, birds, dragons, phoenixes, sunsets, mountains, fish, and bamboo.
Today, the art form has advanced, especially in New York City, where there are many Name Painting artists. Their dedication to this craft has led to many more designs, better details, and brighter colors.
The vibrant colors, images, constantly changing nature of Name Painting, and its emphasis on unique expression make it unlike any other kind of artistic creation.
