1970s to early 1980s The Drawings

Back

A set of 51 drawings of single Chinese characters and phrases. These were done on thin white paper-cardboard. It appears that the ‘Drawings’ were first done with pencil, going over the same line many times and finally with a thick stroke in blue felt tip pen bringing out the final picture. This time, instead of ancient Chinese pictograph, Huang Yao had beautified the characters. An example, instead of a pictograph for mouth, Huang Yao drew a real-looking beautiful mouth with full upper and lower lips.

 This example is part of a popular Tang poem, ‘only in the hills deep among the clouds’. This work was done when he lived in Kuala Lumpur, likely in the late 1970's or even early 1980's.
