Fuen Chin was born in a small town in Malaysia. She is a self-taught artist who eventually pursued a fine art research degree at the Royal College of Art in her late 30s. When Fuen presented her calligraphic painting on the wall to the panel of judges at Royal College of Art, ‘the panel very much enjoyed your proposal and presentation and thought there were a lot of interesting possibilities that may emerge from your works,’ this has encouraged Fuen to continue exploring the ideas, concepts and ‘drama’ embedded in Chinese calligraphy. The motifs of Fuen’s calligraphic paintings change from time to time. She introduces the paintings as the way to communicate, to disseminate ideas and to invite imaginations. The art of her paintings derived from Chinese calligraphy, she proposes that the uniqueness of calligraphy is the multidisciplinary applications: writing, drawing, painting, marking, singing, dancing and playing. Apart from subject and method of a painting, ownership is the most important reality for an artwork. It involves the inheritance of narratives, messages, intellectual properties to be sustained or continue to develop in the future.

Samira is a self-taught artist with a love of portraiture – to her, portraits can engage attention, evoke emotions, and hold a level of relatability unlike any other genre. Samira’s art often reflects themes that have a close association with, moments with friends, to countries explored. Often, she tends to find inspiration in the subtleties of a facial expression or from the exploration of colour and construction. Currently, Samira has been working predominantly in oils, in a style that may be considered as contemporary realism.
