Asian Name Painting
NAME PAINTING ART (LEATHER BRUSH ART) played an important role in the life of common people throughout the 500 years of the reign by Lee Dynasty in Korea.

Character painting also greatly contributed to spreading confucian ideas in the Lee Dynasty era. Unlike Buddhist ideas that emphasize on happiness and life hereafter, Confucianism emphasized the importance of charity and the happiness of life on earth. Character painting has been used mostly for screens and scrolls that people hung on the walls or even for painting the entire walls to give them a touch of life. Since character painting was frequently used for decorating the interior, the artists normally used bright colors. People loved the simplicity of expression that was unique to this form of painting as it represented living art.
