Whê Thi (b.1982) is a Vietnamese/Caucasian Painter and Designer living in Hudson, New York. He studied painting and sculpture at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia.
” Through painting, I aim to capture the sensation of passing time, space, and emotions through gesture, mark making, color, composition and value. I’m interested in how different materials and surfaces influence the spaces around them and how the finished work then affects the space it is in. Moreover, I am interested in creating an peaceful, sometimes playful ethereal moment held still as a picture. ”
“I believe its important play, seriously play like a child, create and be present. “
