Open Studio: Space Painting by Chen Dongfan
After spending 11 days painting his studio from floor to ceiling using colorful, vibrant brushstrokes, artist Chen Dongfan transformed the space into an art piece.
The 1000 square ft piece of art was unveiled on march 4th during the open studio day and attracted hundreds of visitors into the "fairytale-like" space to intimately interact with chen's drawings.
The inspiration for the room came from William Somerset Maugham’s “the moon and sixpence” , a fictional work inspired by the life of painter Paul Gauguin.
Touched by a description from the novel of a room that's painted over by the protagonist, Chen tried to reproduce the room in his studio.
