In Chinese painting the expression of the feeling of emptiness and fullness is greatly important. Painters learn to capture their essence with their heart and mind, spreading it to their work through the four study treasures: paintbrush, ink, inkwell and paper.
Casa Asia collaborates with the Bonsai Museum Luis Vallejo that organises, together with the Embassy of Japan, this demonstration where you can see how master Masashi Hirao approaches the design of a bonsai.
