John Chen

Taiwanese born Australia raised, John has worked in the Visual Effects industry for the past 10 years as a CG artist & lighting artist for film and TV. In early 2019, John decided to quit his day job to pursue a career as a full time artist, dedicating his efforts on his own creations, John's first major commission was to create large scale reliefs for a major theme park on the Gold Coast. John's art explores the darker side of the human psyche. He seeks to unravel the mystery & glimpses of humanity's obsession with religion, occult & magic with his artwork as well as the internal struggles within ones own mind.

Artist Statement - 

'I love to create forms that convey emotion and drama. There is no light without shadow & in the shadows is where I linger.'
