UNKNOWN ASIA Art Exchange Osaka2020




PAYNK is Sharon, born in China (1990) and living in Singapore since the age of two. Graduated from Nanyang Technological University School of Art, Design and Media with a BFA Honors in Visual Communications, PAYNK has a strong foundation in traditional drawing from 5 years of learning traditional mediums and still-life drawing when she was in her early teenage years. Nature, mythology, modern-day living and the female form are her main sources of inspiration. Heavily influenced by a mash-up of vintage Chinese cartoons, Japanese anime, and strange folklores passed down by different cultures, she loves good story-telling and visual metaphors. No matter what the subject matter is, she endeavors to portray it with balance and beauty.
