Charles Choi was born in Shanghai, China and immigrated to Canada in 1995. He learnt painting at the age of 4, with the focus on western master paintings and their creation. In recent years, his focus has been on‘Concrete Expression’- the combination of fundamental painting skills, personal touch and a contemporary approach. He was a multi-award winning artist both in Canada and China including the “Gold Award”of Arts and Letters Club Next 2 art exhibition in 2017,“Best of the Show”in ‘Society of Canadian Artists’Members Annual Art Show in 2013. His work is represented in private and public collections across Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, Singapore and China.
Choi says it is his intention to truly express his subject ‘as it is’ together with his own inner feeling. The color he uses is sweet and gentle, with rich and free brushstrokes which represents the moment in which he paints.
