Commissioned Paintings

Recently we received a commissioned project that involves creating 6 large panels of oil paintings.

So it has been a rather busy few weeks, buzzing with activity in the studio.

It has been a tough but really enjoyable time!

The 6 panels, each over a meter tall, are meant to be in pairs, meaning 3 sets of 2 panels.
Each painting is done in such a way that the motif adjacent in the painting next to it matches and merges.
In this way, all 6 panels are like puzzle pieces that can be mixed and matched and displayed together. 

The theme for this batch of paintings is based on imaginary forms in the microcosmic world.
Like little spores or air particles, or little nucleas, cells or organs in the body. 


Inspiration: Doodles

Doodles children make are amazing. so free and full of imagination, so out of the world and yet so realistic.
We are always so amused and inspired by the stuff that our kids do and create. They try to imitate what the adults do but they do it with so much more dynamism and freedom. And the results are always full of magic!

We have been hoping to come up with a series of new items based on inspirations we get from our children.
and we are still in the midst of exploring and experimenting. Hopefully soon, we will be able to present them to you.

Meanwhile, to all our dear children in the world, continue to have fun!
