The collaboration between Keng Wai 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 uses acrylic, focusing on subjects taken from nature; flowers, picturesque scenery, ocean habitats, and birds.

The merging of these two different styles create a unique amalgamation of hard lines and soft painterly brushstrokes and the gilded canvases give the artwork an extra dimension based on light refraction.

Keng Wai Lee:

Keng Wai Lee’s gorgeously rich animal impressions are a synergy of decorative tableaux and depiction in paint on canvas of his memories and imagination.

“Using acrylic as a medium, I tend to reminisce through my past getting inspiration to create my artwork. This may come from remembering all
my scribbles in my textbooks/school books full of monsters and machines in a apocalyptic world or just indulging in my hobbies of looking at swimming
goldfish and local bird watching through my window for hours on end, giving them names and characters.”

Marco Araldi:

Marco’s background is in engineering and architecture, making him familiar with mathematical design and the awareness of geometry.
When he decided to create art, he was naturally drawn to cartography, applying traditional techniques such as multiple Cartesian coordinates and polar system coordinates to maps he draws.
He is also deeply influenced by astronomy and navigation, frequently using charts for positioning at sea using star systems as well as revolution of the sun charts in his Mappa Mundi.
His artwork is done in ink, acrylic, watercolour and gild on canvas.
