Yin Chua’s artistic expression draws profound inspiration from the spiritual discipline of meditation and her affinity for nature. The Singaporean artist aspires to be known as “the artist that paints peace”. Through her creations, Yin endeavors to disseminate the message of equanimity and self-love through her artistry.
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.
