The Minimalism, as the most important and most characteristic school of art, comes of painting, and later developed to the fields of sculpture, design, music, literature etc. All kinds of Western art genres are still dominant in the modern arts of China. We blindly learn from the West, and adore the West. In view of this the paper has comprehensively discussed and analyzed the correlations and similarities between the Minimalism and Chinese traditional ink painting through literature research, case analysis, comprehensive analysis real contrast and other methods in order to find the balance point. First, the colors they use are single and concise; the ink painting mainly uses black and white, while the Minimalism painting is not limited to black and white. Second, the brushwork of them is simplified and superb. A few strokes express infinite connotation. Third, be fond of leaving blank in space layout. It gives people infinite imagination and leads a person to endless aftertastes. Forth, both of them attach importance to the creation of artistic conception.
