Before moving into America, he accumulated profound experience and knowledge in oil painting and watercolor in South Korea, and he continued to study abstract painting for years for his Master's degree in Long Island University.
Chin has been concentrating on New York cityscapes for the last 5 years after becoming inspired by the streets of Manhattan.
The culture, history, music, and movies of New York serve as a guiding force for his paintings. Technique-wise, he has been influenced by Korean calligraphy and the wild brush strokes of Expressionism. All of these elements have influenced Chin's work. His goal is to transform these street scenes of daily life into a form of visual poetry. Ultimately, he is looking for an extremely positivemental satisfaction found in his work. This can be broken down technically as light and color; light standing for hope for our future. Hopefully, viewers will understand the intended message Chin is trying to send through his painting
