Allow me to introduce to you an amazing young artist called Chris Chun. His colourful and highly decorative artworks are inspired by beauty, nature, travel and food.
All of his work is a visual celebration of the joy of life and his images positively sing with exuberance and joie de vivre. He has very kindly allowed me to showcase some of his work here, I am particularly intrigued by the process he uses to create his art, using a combination of collage, painting and sometimes sewing. You can see some of his work in progress here on Chris’s blog.
My favorite piece is called “Mum’s Altar table” (see top illustration) a mixed media work in acrylic, ink, gouache and tissue paper collage. Chris says’ about the work :-"This painting is taken from Mum's altar table. It displays my lucky monk I bought from Japan as a kid as well as goldfish and various antique pieces from Mum. There are lots of good luck charms on the table"
You can find out more about Chris here on his website, you may be also tempted by some of the many goodies in his shop!
