Zen masters used the medium of paper, brush, and ink to create Zenga–art formed with “brushstrokes of enlightenment.” Over the centuries, Zenga were widely dispersed over Japan, displayed everywhere–in temples, in farm houses, in merchant shops, in samurai villas, and in lordly castles. In modern times, Zenga have been recognized as one of the glories of world culture, and many wonderful Zenga have come to the West to work their magic.


To view our collection of Zenga for sale, please visit the Zen Art Gallery, which is curated by Zen Art expert John Stevens, who is also the author of this blog.
