Guoqiang Wang, Inheritor of traditional lacquer painting and decorating techniques.
Lacquer is the plant sap cut from the lacquer tree. The Compendium of Materia Medica records that "Lacquer tree, the whole plant can be used as medicine".Artifacts made of lacquer have the characteristics of wear-resistant, heat-resistant, water-insulating, good insulation, acid, and alkali corrosion-resistant, etc. It is a high-quality coating for the military industry, industrial equipment, capital construction, handicrafts, and high-end furniture.
The art of using lacquer is known as traditional lacquer painting and decorating techniques and is an intangible cultural heritage of China, with a history of more than 8,000 years in the country. Only the Ming Dynasty "Painting and Decorating Record" records that there are more than 180 kinds of lacquer crafts. Eart Musical Instrument Co. and Guoqiang Wang, the inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage of traditional lacquer painting and decorating techniques, have entered into a cooperation to apply one of the nearly 200 different lacquer techniques to guitars. He not only solves the problem of over-uniformity of factory products but also meets the psychological needs of people in pursuit of individuality and creativity. This craft has been passed down from the Song Dynasty for more than 1,000 years. Its unique texture language, the direction of the mixed grain, and the colorful color experience all interpret the natural oriental aesthetics and the absolutely beautiful Chinese mood. This craftsman uses this process to realize the creation of one-of-a-kind pieces, giving each guitar the value of a work of art.
