Elegant, Colorful Chaos in Zeen Chin’s Digital Paintings

Zeen Chin - Throb - cover

Zeen Chin is a self-taught artist living in Kuala Lumpur. Drawing upon a mysterious well of horror films, memories, and mysticism, his digital paintings are wildly elegant and unpredictable; scrolling from one image to the next, you can never predict (nor comprehend) what you will see next. Anime-like characters parade with cartoonish, folklore-inspired beasts, and elsewhere, hermits undergo bizarre experiments in muted rooms. Shifting dramatically from playful innocence to high-fetish suggestiveness, the chaos of Chin’s subject matter is transmuted into its own strange logic and beauty through the flowing lines and compositions. He released an art book last year, and be sure to visit his page on Instagram for more.
