This Japanese artist creates beautiful dragons using a single brush stroke

A video showing Japanese artist Keisuke Teshima painting a dragon’s full body with one single stroke, has gone viral.

The Kyoto-based artist performed the traditional technique in the video, using a calligraphy brush to create spellbinding patterns on the dragon’s body without breaking the stroke.

Teshima painted four one-stroke dragons representing four seasons in February this year. The video, which was uploaded by Art Book on its Facebook on August 5, has been viewed more than 2 million times.
