CHINA TOWN GATE
A Chinatown, a place where a vast majority of the people who live there are Asian (not always Chinese. China Town as a "Chinese enclave", is defined as "... any small, distinct area or [Chinese] group enclosed or isolated within a larger [Non-Chinese] group." The development of most Chinatowns typically starts with mass migration to an area having zero or very few Chinese. China Town Gate always appeared at China Town in every part of the world. China town gate called as A Paifang牌坊, also known as a pailou, is a traditional style of Chinese architectural arch or gateway structure that is related to the Indian Torana from which it is derived. Paifangs come in a number of forms. One form involves placing wooden pillars onto stone bases, which are bound together with wooden beams. This type of paifang is always beautifully decorated, with the pillars usually painted in red, the beams decorated with intricate designs and Chinese calligraphy, and the roof covered with coloured tiles, complete with mythical beastsjust like a Chinese palace. Another form of paifang is in the form of true archways made of stone or bricks; the walls may be painted, or decorated with coloured tiles; the top of the archways are decorated like their wooden counterparts. Yet another form of paifang, built mainly on religious and burial grounds, consists of plain white stone pillars and beams, with neither roof tiles nor any coloured decoration, but feature elaborate carvings created by master masons.
A very large abstract landscape artwork on canvas inspired by Lucy in the Sky with diamonds. Deeply textured and vibrant. This artwork was created in layers of intense colour which are allowed to pool in areas to create a real depth of colour. Multiple bright colours are washed and glazed over the texture in many applications in my signature style. No framing required. Ready to hang.
