Calvin Chih-Hao Teng, from Taichung, Taiwan - The artist shares this statement.
"Don’t like over-elaborate formalities. Don’t enjoy citing classic works. Not good at giving long-winded statement. I only use ingenuity, simplicity, modesty, and intuition to share and examine my notion of creativity.
Through self-awareness, I realize that life goes on. Through sunlight, air and water, my paintings begin to breathe. With deep Chinese cultural influences, I wonder through the imaginary, three-dimensional space constructed by virtual and real images. Filled with dramatic tension at times, Or with calming rhythms at another, I turn poetry into paintings.
Everything I paint, Has not only become living artworks that breathe, But also a window to the soul. Like shadows casted by wielding a sword, Intangibles are there to paint. I Paint, Therefore I Am."
Calvin's work is on display at The Whistler Contemporary Gallery at the Four Seasons, and Hilton.
