‘Dragon Art Chinoiseriez.’
This Dragon Art print shows a cluster of Dragons flying over the Brighton Royal Pavilion. It is a fancy take on the fact that the interior of the Royal Pavilion is decorated in Chinoiserie style with the depiction of dragons appearing in ceramics, wall paper, lamps and so on.
From original ink drawing to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks. I issue the formats A0, A1 & A2,A3 and A4 as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print.
To name the print I have combined two words: the word ‘Chinoiserie’ that relates to the European decorative style that in XVIII and XIX c. uses historic Asian elements and my surname end ‘ez’ . The inspiration for the creation of my dragon looks towards the East again at South Asian dragons around 1244 from the Southern Song dynasty dragons by artist Chen Rong. He painted a paper roll called ‘Nine Dragons’. It is a handscroll painting that depicts the apparitions of dragons soaring amidst clouds, mists, whirlpools, rocky mountains and fire, the painting refers to the dynamic forces of nature in Daoism. The depicted dragons are associated with nine sons of the Dragon King, while the number nine itself is considered auspicious in Chinese astrology and folk beliefs.
