The thirteenth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by Chin H. Shin entitled "Magical Night in New York ". From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour. Inspired by Shin, our dyer has successfully captured the vibrancy of the colours of the painting.
Chin has been concentrating on New York cityscapes for the last 2 years after becoming inspired by the streets of Manhattan.The culture, history, music, and movies of New York serve as a guiding force for his paintings. Technique-wise, he has been influenced by Korean calligraphy and the wild brush strokes of Expressionism. All of these elements have influenced Chin's work. His goal is to transform these street scenes of daily life into a form of visual poetry. Ultimately, he is looking for an extremely positive mental satisfaction found in his work. This can be broken down technically as light and color; light standing for hope for our future. Hopefully, viewers will understand the intended message Chin is trying to send through his paintings. Moreover, his painting is based on realism, but he believes that there is an unlimited possibility of variations. Whenever he starts a new painting, he paints with curiosity and childish dreams with enormous energy. His painting style uses bold lines and colorful brush strokes, and completes with unique texture. Psychologically, his painting is based on extreme optimism and humanism. [quoted from Chinhshin.com]
