Yong Suksamran was born in Thailand but has lived for many years in New Zealand where he currently resides. For several years he lived in Ottawa where he was inspired by the beauty of the city. His background is in post-graduate fashion design and tecnology which has given him his inspiration for colour and texture. Techniques that he learned with fabrics have led to skills in drawing and colour mix.”I love bright colours. It is a challenge to create an oil painting but I get enormous satisfaction from seeing the painting come alive on the canvas.
I spend time thinking and researching my subject and themes so that my paintings are unique and striking to the eye. In many of my oil paintings, your eye can rove across the canvas and focus on different details. Hopefully you get the sparkle or dance that comes from what you see and what is delightful. The richness of the texture and using shade and colour to best advantage is what I like about oil painting.
