Kin’s paintings are meticulously crafted. With the distinct aesthetics of Japanese illustration art, the works of this Singaporean artist feature exquisite detailing. His creations are inspired by a lifelong love of nature and a passion for human narrative. ‘Supersurreal’ is a pseudonym that Kin used when he first started making art. Kin draws inspiration from the 20th-century avant-garde movement of ‘Surrealism’. His art finds magic and strange beauty in the unexpected and the uncanny, the disregarded and the unconventional.
His latest series, ‘Supersurreal and the Invisible Heroes’ is born of the realization that each random person we pass by on the road is living a life as vivid and complex as our own. Invisible heroes are individuals among us whose deeds we often take for granted, as they prove their valour quietly, every day. As Kin gradually incorporates Invisible Heroes in his paintings, we see whimsical characters and objects that invite the viewers to observe with him their transformation and the evolution of their life stories. No matter how serene and secluded each scene may be, still water runs deep. Kin’s skillful visual storytelling will take you from wonder to awe.
