Keng Wai Lee and Marco Araldi

The collaboration between K W Lee and Marco Araldi is based on the contrast between the techniques used. Marco uses ink pen and gold creating geometrical patterns and graphic illustrations. Lee’s technique is in his use of acrylic, he paints subjects taken from nature: flowers, picturesque scenery and birds. The canvases are gilded in order to give the art work an extra dimension based on light refraction. The two different styles are merged creating a unique amalgamation of hard lines and soft painterly brushstrokes.
