Chin Cheng Hung

Chin Cheng Hung uses pastel (the infamously tricky medium) to create herculean dedications to anatomical accuracy (ever the extremist i use my words carefully and consciously).
Hung's dedication to the seemingly trivial (neckfolds, wrinkles, facial stubble) make him a technically astute artist.
I expressed the sentimental human sense with a powerful visual effect through the huge, detailed faces. I used the simple background to emphasize the figure and to involve minimal atmosphere. Through my paintings, I want to bring a different way of representing portraiture to viewers and make this art form more contemporary.
i look forward to seeing a lot more of his work.
