Actually, the prefix "post-" in "Post-Lingnan School of Painting" not only stands for a time-space concept, but also acclaims some sort of cultural criticism. "Post-Lingnan" therefore refers to a loose group of individual artists with distinctive features and propositions. It also manifests the current cultural feature of Guangdong province. It is the diverse individuality that creates the multiple ink dimension.
