YIN CHUA

Yin Chua, largely known as the “artists that paints peace” is for the better part a self taught artist who attributes her artistic genes to her late grandfather – a photographer & avid Chinese calligraphist.

Pressures & challenges of societal norms mixed with expectations of a traditional Asian family favoured otherwise, leading Yin to choose a degree in Communications over an education in the Arts; despite having known from a young age that she indeed wanted to be an artist. Her art is largely inspired by the spiritual practice of meditation & love for nature.Often drawing inspiration from Zen philosophies, Yin Chua finds herself having a loving fondness for its mindfulness teachings. A sentiment spurred on by her embarkment on a 10 days silent retreat to a Vipassana centre in 2016 had greatly impacted her, steering her towards a minimalist lifestyle.

Akin to the method of plen-air, her works induce surrealistic feelings of being within the time-space. Her delicate yet purposeful placement of each stroke to the elements create a harmonious mood throughout the sceneries.
