Description Toronto is a beautiful multicultural city perched on the shores of Lake Ontario. I've painted this in celebration of my 30th year of immigrating here from Hong Kong. To add my own Chinese flavour, I did the sky and waves oriental style. I also added the Chinese archway (which in real life cannot be seen from the waterfront)
OY Tai, Canada Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement The two sides of me...
My sumi paintings are essentially monochromatic. I find boundless freedom in expressing myself through different shades of black, white and grey. I love to use minimal strokes capturing the essence while leaving enough white space for the viewer's imagination.
With acrylic, watercolor and oil, I feel like a 4 year old child rolling on the floor coating myself with all the different colors I love. Unlike my Chinese ink paintings, I fill the canvas with so much color that it might be suffocating for you but I am having so much fun I just want to share it with you too.
