Shymin Chor (b. in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia) graduated from QUT Australia with Bachelor of Laws, and received an MA in Painting from Savannah College of Art & Design, USA. She teaches fundamentals of drawing and painting. Her time in the USA has opened doors to non-traditional methods and materials in the creation process and has impacted the way she sees and creates drawings particularly, not as preparatory sketch to paintings, but a finished work of art. She also continues to paint to engage with its legacy and relevance. Her recent drawings (Love Letters) were inspired by local familial situations and organised around surreal landscapes addressing issues of identity, transformation and connecting to the inner child.
