BEHIND THE NAME

Joy Chiang is an artist living and working in Melbourne, Australia painting contemporary abstract art. She strives to create work that captures emotions and beauty through the language of colour. Her background is in urban planning and development where she studied at the University of Melbourne, but she has always loved everything art and design. 

 

Joy describes her mix media art as the physical manifestation of her curiosity intersecting with the start of an early mid-life crisis; blending inspiration from nature and adding explosions of city chaos. This results in beautiful emotive pieces. ​Her latest work has been inspired by motherhood and the love for her family. 

 

Joy defines her art as spontaneous but intentional. Each work is a series of layers until the final image has built up to bring dimension to the surface along with imagery to narrate the viewer through the painting. Joy’s paintings, with their bold brushstrokes, colorful patterns, and exuberantly painted movements, give the false impression of simplicity, yet remains passionately complex. Her use of Chinese calligraphy brushes and inks pays homage to her Chinese heritage where she was born. Interested in organic movements and synthetic boldness, Joy always conveys a sense of freedom and of course..joy
