Artist Recreates Traditional Chinese Painting Using Rollerblades

Haisu Tian is an artist in Fremont, California. One of her recent projects puts a new spin on traditional Chinese ink painting. In Landskating, Tian composed an enormous landscape on sheets of rice paper. To apply the ink, she didn’t use a paintbrush, but rollerblades.

Tian’s rollerblades were modified to stream ink over the front wheels from a reservoir mounted in front of the toes. She described it as a full-body experience of composition:

My whole body is involved and I produce all kinds of ink landscapes, such creation is full of power, speed and rhythm.
