Contemporary Artist, NFT Artist
Alvin Koay is a self-taught contemporary artist and is best known for his intuitive style of painting and bold colors.
Resonating with the abstract expressionism movement of post world war II, he is influenced by early works of Willem de Kooning, Basquiat, Picasso and other great painters of that era. All of his works are based on impulses, spontaneity and improvisation. He constantly finds “accidental aesthetics” as he attacks the canvas with vigorous colors, lines and textures.
He paints his state of mind and emotions, with motives from mother nature, animals and his personal life experiences. Alvin uses primarily acrylic on canvas as his preferred medium.
