Experiment. Innovate. Create. Verbs that apply daily on artist James Chiew. His mixed media art forces him to seek for new boundaries. Moreover, he regularly exceeds boundaries to discover new limits. James’s choice of material is also outside the box. He combines acrylic paint, epoxy, wood, metal and even cowhide with photographic images and objects in a unique way. And with everything else that seems possible… His challenge is trying to do the impossible. ‘Either I will find a way or I will make one’ is James’s motto. James was born in Singapore. As a gifted autodidact (he did not follow any design or art course) he and his family emigrated to The Netherlands when he was 17 years old. In the course of time he has developed into a professional art director and photographer. His constant impetus to creative expressions has turned him into the artist he is now. There is a lot of immersion in his artwork. James’s objets d’art contain multi layers literally and figuratively.
