  • graffiti inspired chinese ceramics from beijing’s kwanyin clan

    The Kwanyin Clan from Beijing recently tipped us off to some of their graffiti work and we were particularly impressed by their crossover series of graffiti inspired Chinese ceramics. Using traditional “blue and white porcelain” as a medium, the Kwanyin Clan added their own distinctive graffiti touch to add a modern, street art flair. The Chinese characters on the porcelain plate in the bottom two pictures are “和气” meaning ‘peace’ in English.

      Thanks for the link- those look great!

      I think it’s particularly interesting to see this done on Chinese “qing hua” (青花) ceramics as there is a such a long history of its use in China dating back as early as the Song dynasty.

      I love the characters! They add even more to the authentic feel of it! I understand their use is not so common, because it is more difficult to develop graffiti-style Chinese characters?
