Internationally acclaimed Chinese calligraphic artist Wang Dongling is currently visiting New Zealand for the first time. The Creative Thinking Project was delighted to collaborate with the Bank of China and the Auckland Art Gallery – Toi o Tamaki to host Wang DongLing for a special art event: creating a new large-scale calligraphic work in front of a live audience.
Wang DongLing used ink and brush to paint the abstracted characters of the Heart Sutra on rice paper laid in the Gallery’s Atrium floor. His performative creative act was accompanied by solo cellist Catherine Kwak.
Watch Wang Dongling and his audience engage with the work as the creative process unfolds…
