More About Shan Re
What inspires you?
Everything I create comes from a source beyond my conscious awareness. I always tried to perceive life beyond logic and I feel that every creative act is a work of magic.
Describe your creative process.
Colour is the vital force and a symbolic language through which I create my narratives. Colour evokes a psychic vibration in me and unlocks my creative flow. Spontaneity is the key factor in my work and my colour palette is very instinctive. Colour in my paintings is not just a visual sensation; it holds stories and communicates with you on a deeper level.
Where do you go for inspiration?
My art is mainly about repainting life in changing hues, and expressing multiple layers of life in metaphors. It is a silent soliloquy to recapture my subconscious and access higher dimensions of life.
