The River-stroke by JY

Like the tributaries coursing through rolling hills and valleys, JY’s calligraphy art is an undulating and elevated articulation of tradition, poetry, syntax, meter and emotions. With each stroke of his brush, akin to tributaries flowing into a confluence of thoughts, a river of expressions.
The River stroke is a homage to his grandfather’s traditions - sojourns into memory; joy, love, anguish, and desire. When at first seen as unconventional and a brackish riposte to the traditions, JY’s art is very much steeped in the craft and deftness of traditional Chinese calligraphy. 
Beyond that, his art sees a world no longer delineated by rules, but only of a single-minded expression of thought, infused with layers of contemplation and purpose, expressed in the movement of his unceasing River-stroke.

North country scene,a hundred leagues locked in ice, a thousand leagues of whirling snow.

Both sides of the Great Wall, one single white immensity.

The Yellow River's swift current, is stilled from end to end.

The mountains dance like silver snakes, and the highlands charge like wax-hued elephants, vying with heaven in stature.

On a fine day, the land, clad in white, adorned in red, grows more enchanting.

This land so rich in beauty,

has made countless heroes bow in homage.

But alas! Chin Shih-huang and Han Wu-ti, were lacking in literary grace,

and Tang Tai-tsung and Sung Tai-tsu,had little poetry in their souls;

And Genghis Khan, proud Son of Heaven for a day, knew only shooting eagles, bow outstretched.

All are past and gone, for truly great men, look to this age alone.
