Fuen Chin

Born: 1979

Hometown: Sungai Petani, Kedah.

Based in: Sungai Petani, Kedah

 

Fuen Chin was born in a small town in Malaysia. She is a self-taught artist who eventually pursued a fine art research degree at the Royal College of Art in her late 30s. When Fuen presented her calligraphic painting on the wall to the panel of judges at Royal College of Art, ‘the panel very much enjoyed your proposal and presentation and thought there were a lot of interesting possibilities that may emerge from your works,’ this has encouraged Fuen to continue exploring the ideas, concepts and ‘drama’ embedded in Chinese calligraphy.

The motifs of Fuen's calligraphic paintings change from time to time. She introduces painting as a way to communicate, to disseminate ideas and to invite imaginations. The art of her paintings derived from Chinese calligraphy. She proposes that the uniqueness of the calligraphy is the multidisciplinary applications: writing, drawing, painting, marking, singing, dancing and playing.

Apart from subject and method of a painting, ownership is another important reality of an artwork. It involves the inheritance of narratives, messages, intellectual properties to be sustained or continue to develop in the future. Public showcase of the five calligraphic floral paintings at Vintners Place, London was the important milestones for Fuen. It was the first project of corporate art and it was an honor to work with the place and the curator – ARTful, London. Fuen feel thankful for the messages in the paintings: channel the deficient images to aesthetical direction and to encourage a respect, a bravery and a confession of the imperfect conditions of human eyes, such as aging, obscurity and impermanence are innovatory artistic direction, being accepted and visually published in the 1980s classical-style office building in the City of London
