Ink and calligraphy brush are where the tradition of Chinese art started and develops.

Since its birth, ink-and-wash painting has not been intended to portray the physical world meticulously. Rather it has sought to express the human mind and soul.

That belief has been shared by today's Chinese artists, and some are showing their enrichment of the ink art at Tradition in Today, an exhibition at Kunstmuseum Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

It showcases ink paintings and calligraphic pieces by 12 artists, which present a communication between artistic tradition and new media.

The exhibition ends on Sept 13.
