Isaac Tin Wei Lin

Isaac Tin Wei Lin paints calligraphic, letter-like forms in effervescing colors that evoke patterns and structures found in nature—on both the macro and micro level. The artist paints on a range of surfaces and supports, from a regular-sized canvas to a thirteen-story building. Lin’s dense calligraphy is a kind of graffiti in which comprehensible lettering gives way to pure form—bringing to mind biomorphs, lattices, entangling kudzu, DNA helices and sine waves.
