Artchat recently caught up with Echo Chai, one of the artists featuring in our March exhibition, to learn a little more about them and their art.
AC: Describe your art in a sentence. EC: Painting is another way to describe my story.
AC: What is your favourite medium to paint in and why? EC: Acrylic / similar like oil but dry faster, I can paint more layers to make colour more beautiful
AC: Has the direction of your paintings or perception developed and changed over time? EC: From oil to acrylic, and, from impressionism to modernism AC: What inspires you to paint these particular scenes? EC: When I was sent back home from 4 months chemo treatment of my leukaemia last year, I asked a friend driving me to see an exhibition in the city, and, the first time I noticed the sun was so bright, city was so colourful, people was so happy, as well the life and, especially, the nature. This is it.
