Xue Song, Only Your Old Pine Tree, 2021

Working together with Xue Song, Loftyart is proud to present a series of handcrafted, limited edition, silkscreen prints, each signed and numbered by the artist. The series takes Xue Song’s iconic style and transforms it into printed images through an extensive printmaking process. Every detail of each image is divided into individual screens and colors, and then layered back together, forming the composition piece by piece in a high number of runs. The process draws on the latest contemporary printmaking techniques and meets all the challenges of recreating the highly-detailed nature of Xue Song’s style of collage.

Feng Zikai (1899 – 1975) was a essayist, painter, and educator of Republican China (1911 – 1949) known for pioneering the Manhua genre. Feng’s illustrations are simple and elegant in form and generally convey childlike sentiments. Xue Song pays homage to Feng’s Ancient Poetry, New Painting – Only Your Old Pine Tree with his iconic style of burnt collage, and thereby reinvents the image in contemporary fashion.
