Tao painter traps nature in brush strokes

Before J.D. Chou paints one of his ink-on-rice-paper works, the Hong Kong artist will meditate for as long as a week, emptying his mind so an image can appear.

When he is ready, Chou will paint quickly and continuously, because it is important not to break the chi, or breath - a source of human power, according to Tao philosophy. "You can't hesitate, so you have to know exactly what you are doing" he says
