Intricate Charm of Lacquer Can Often Take Months to Achieve

Lacquer art created by Fan Fuan and his students is on display at Tada Museum in Tianjin until the end of this month.

One of the projects supported by China National Art Funds, this is the second stop for this touring exhibition. Its first stop was at Shanghai World Financial Center last month.

Born in Huangshan, Anhui Province, Fan is a pioneer of lacquer painting. A graduate from the art academy of Hefei Normal University, he has been engaged in the area for more than a decade.

In his eyes, a piece of high-quality lacquer painting should be a combination of technique and creativity. “Only through the merging of technique and art, can the charm of lacquer painting be radiated,” he said.

Lacquer has been used since the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 BC) for decoration and preservation of wooden projects in China. By the Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 220), decoration had become more intricate. Making a lacquer painting may take several months depending on the technique used and the number of layers of lacquer. Each layer requires drying and polishing.
