Digital Word of Elegant and Mystic Chaos by Zeen Chin

Zeen Chin is a self-taught artist based in Kuala Lumpur. Drawing upon a magical well of terror films, memories, and mysticism, his digital paintings are wildly tasteful and unpredictable; swiping from one picture to the next, you can never forecast (nor understand) what you will see next. Anime-like characters parade with cartoonish, folklore-inspired beasts, and elsewhere, hermits undergo odd 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 peculiar logic and beauty throughout the flowing lines and compositions. He published an artbook this past year, and be sure to see his webpage on Instagram for more.
