About this artwork

Stevie Chow's latest collection of works is inspired by a playful exploration of the role of language in shaping our perceptions and experiences of the world. Titled "Own The Day", the collection is intended as a positive exhortation to live in the present moment. Chow uses a variety of materials, including acrylic, chrome-plated vinyl, cut-out letters and money, all enclosed in a sparkling glitter and resin finish on a birch wood panel.

Stevie Chow finds inspiration in exploring how language shapes our perceptions and experiences of the world. In this artwork, he pays homage to his original "keep it simple" painting from his "Money Series" exhibition, which was virtually hosted by Gallery 23 NY in 2021. The artist emphasises that "keep it simple" is a crucial mindset for living a good life, as it allows us to prioritise our own goals and not be influenced by external noise. Characterised by bold simplicity, this work serves as a positive reminder to focus on what we can control and not dwell on the things we cannot control. The acrylic letters and background are hand-painted on a birch wood panel and finished with glitter and resin.

Using acrylic paint, resin and found objects, Stevie Chow creates large-format paintings that act as visual reminders of a good life. A self-taught artist, his work is rooted in a childhood spent exploring the world, which sparked a deep curiosity about what constitutes a fulfilling life.

After leaving the corporate world to pursue his passion, Stevie's artworks began attracting the attention of influential entrepreneurs in the United States, leading to two solo exhibitions in New York and charity auctions totalling nearly a million dollars by the end of 2021.

Although he took a short break in 2022 to deal with some long-running substance abuse issues, Stevie is back with a fresh look and a new collection of works that show his growth and development as an artist.
