Wan Nian Temple
Artist: H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III（H.H.第三世多杰羌佛）
Style: Xiangtong （鄉童派）
This painting uses calligraphic techniques to express a natural appeal. The rural ancient temple is depicted with utmost simplicity, as if scribbled by the inexperienced and innocent hand of a child. In reality, however, this work embodies mature artistry. This work belongs to the “Xiangtong” style of painting.
The “Xiangtong” style
There is a rustic and childlike charm to these paintings. With the mindset of an innocent child, the artist casually wields his brush without being led by pre-conceived notions, applying a seasoned adeptness that conveys an impression of simplicity and purity.
