The moment one talks about bamboo art, one thing that comes to mind is 'Asia' - where it has been used since ancient times in paintings, scrolls, pottery, & various other art forms. Though for sometime now, Western artists & craftsmen are recognizing bamboo as a "new" material & are working to bring its artistic & sustainable value to the people.
