Shop – The Acrylic Paintings of Suyin Wai
"Every artist was first an amateur" - Ralph Waldo Emerson Born in Montreal, Quebec but, now lives in Toronto.
She trained at George Brown College for Graphic Design but ended up slaving away in the cubicle jungle in the financial service industry until she finally escaped.
She began painting 2012 to balance out the cubicle culture that permeates our society. Suyin’s art is mostly abstract influenced by many artists from Egon Schiel to Impressionism and everything in between, including whimsical illustrations (Ralph Steadman is a favourite).
She started with acrylics on wood or canvas but later found that she prefers to use oil pastels and India ink on chalk paint painted either on paper or wood. She still sometimes uses acrylics but, often find mineral or chalk paint preferable.
