His Way: The Paintings of Chen Chi

The late Chen Chi moved to the United States in 1947 from his home country of China. As a painter, his works showcase the traditional Chinese techniques of watercolor. The delicacy of his medium allowed him to ever so gracefully capture the amazing power of nature and the elemental forces. Themes of the artwork came from the environment at the time of each pieces creation. Never did he look back, but only in the present did he gain his inspiration. This, in addition to Chi’s extraordinary mastery of brush and color, made his work individually and indisputably his own.  “Like Frank Sinatra, I do it my way.” – Chen Chi
