‘I always thought artists required some time off in the woods to clear their minds and get some inspiration… Now it’s all found on the internet!’
A surreal day- we went on location with Chin Yew, the founder of the ’30 Day Artist’ movement. We recorded him painting with acrylic on canvas and then grind chinese ink on an inkstone to draw a comic strip. These guys are famous for creating 40 works of art in 30 days.
I always thought artists required some time off in the woods to clear their minds and get some inspiration. Nowadays, it’s all found on the internet! Chin Yew assures me that he still takes trips to go up north to experience the simpler life. He listens to conversations for the spark to get him going on his next piece of work.
I had a room like Chin Yew’s when I was at college rushing artwork assignments and burning the midnight oil. His room was so cramped that I’m sure if I stretched out my leg, I would’ve broke a lamp! With all due respect, we creative folks need a cosy place to roll out that masterpiece. Large spaces make us feel alone but large spaces give videographers more room to maneuver! What a trip
