Nude in oil
David Chen M.A. (Fine Arts), B.A. (Fine Arts), Grad. Dip. Art Edn
David is Chinese-born. His artistic credentials speak for themselves. His prestigious awards include winning the Silver Hawke Award at the Fourth International Art Contest in Nice in 1992. David came to Australia soon after.
David's classical training combined with his style and technical skill merge to create works of art that delight the minds eye. His painterly approach to laying down brush stokes of oil paint merge to reveal a seascape or nude that emerges from the patterns of light and shade created by his bold strokes. The more you look at David's work the more you see, its as if the subject grows and develops whilst you gaze in wonder at his use of paint.
