Bamboo art has a proud tradition among Asian cultures. As this unique plant has become increasingly popular among art audiences around the world, the amount of art depicting it has increased. These works are generally relaxing plant images and have been used widely for both home and business decorations.
Like many Asian prints, the symbolism of the subject and the meditative qualities of bamboo paintings are one of the most important aspects of this art category. These natural world paintings are symbols of renewal, flexibility, and regeneration. In Asian prints, these plants are depicted sensitively and are often one of the main subjects in the painting, as seen in 'Bamboo's Peace' by Katsumi Sugita.
