Calvin Lai
"Expose" Oil Painting

2018

$1,150

About

Calvin Lai's (US based) "Expose" is an original, handmade oil painting that depicts a nude female figure kneeling in a little black dress, clutching her arms to her body, as grey and red patterns swirl around her form. Artist Bio: Calvin Lai's art is a mixture of medicine, meditation, and personal growth. He found early on that drawing was something he loved, and to make a picture appear lifelike became his goal. Through constantly drawing, his work began to breath, and his fascination with value and perspective led Calvin to become a student of realism. Eventually he moved from where he grew up in Los Angeles to San Francisco. There he studied drawing and printmaking at San Francisco State University. In 2008, he enrolled in the Academy of Art for illustration, but began painting instead. He found that he preferred the fine arts over commercial illustration, and now works as a full time San Francisco oil painter.
