This contemporary painting by Chin H Shin is part of his ‘Urban Jungle’ series which focuses on capturing the vibrant character of New York City. The dynamic spirit of the brushwork and gesture involved in this artwork romantisises on the magic of an area that is bathed in rich history and culture. Incorporated is a mystical and mysterious palette of serene turquoise hues. An innovative approach to creating an impression of colour and light suffuses a lyricism, creating a visual image that is poetically woven together in illuminating tones. A clear influence of Korean calligraphy combined with Expressionism is synergised in this piece, producing a unique impression of the metrapolis. An everyday cityscape is transformed as the artist demonstrates merging of abstraction and figuration to describe the bright artificial glow and architectural giants that are distinctive to the place. This original work of art is painted in oils on canvas, hand signed by the artist and ready to be displayed.
