About the artist:
Canadian Chinese brush artist Tai Oi Yee 戴愛兒 was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada in the early 1980s. She first learned Chinese brush painting from the late Master Lai Yuk Hay 黎毓熙 in Hong Kong who was a renowned artist trained by the great masters of Chinese painting, the late Lin Feng Mian
and Pan Tian Shou.
She was fortunate enough to be accepted as one of Master Lai's last private students before he passed away. Though the learning journey was cut short by Master Lai's passing, it has a profound influence on Oi Yee and has enabled her to flourish on her own.
Oi Yee sees beauty in simplicity and has developed her own spontaneous minimalist style. Her brush strokes are deft and mature, yet the feel is innocent and playful. Her paintings are all marked with her simplistic fluid spontaneity . She loves to leave ample white space in her Chinese ink wash paintings so as not to distract, as well as to allow room for the viewer's own imagination. This stems from 莊子 Zhuangzi's Taoist line of thinking - sometimes not doing anything is action in itself. Oi Yee's art style is that of "follow the heart" and "go with the natural flow", which also reflects the way she lives.
