About kah wah tan

Commercial photographer and " the incomplete artist ", always inspired by the thousands of artists out there....their images seeping and mixing within my mind over time....nudging me to a next image.

I start a painting with marks and lines and let time/gut notions/colors fill the spaces...until an image appears that appeals to my other self.

I paint intuitively as not being schooled in art and poor in realistic representation of life.....expressionism and abstract become an easier path for delineating my other self.

In 2021, I started to use digital painting as a new medium as a digression from traditional materials.
