Oriental Art Supply began in the early 1970s with our father Ning Yeh teaching and demonstrating the Yeh family 500 year tradition of spontaneous style Chinese brush painting at local colleges, county fairs and senior communities in the Southern California area. From those humble beginnings, he built a worldwide following of students with many of his original students becoming influential teachers themselves.
Backed by 500 years of family tradition, we provide the finest materials and instruction for Chinese Brush Painting, Calligraphy, Japanese Sumi-e and Asian brush art. The materials come with helpful, friendly advice and service to answer any questions and get you painting and experiencing the joy of Chinese Brush painting.
When he first started teaching, he noticed that the biggest obstacle to his students enjoyment of Brush painting was a source of quality supplies. So he and our mother Ling Chi began importing small quantities of Chinese brushes and ink, color, and rice paper from Asia.
