A Fantastical Method of Oil Painting

New York City-based, Chinese artist, Stone (aka Chun Shi), uses the term ‘Shi-Cun-Kuai;’ to describe his innovative method of oil painting. Translated from Chinese, ‘Shi Cun’ is Stone’s name and ‘Kuai’ means ‘Cube.’ The ‘Shi-Cun-Kuai’ technique uses premixed oil colors to create thousands of three-dimensional cubes to compose the Chinese and US currency, and pop culture icons, such as Marilyn Monroe, Buddha, Peking opera masks, the Cross, and emoji. Stone’s paintings, with their sculpted brushstrokes and exuberant color patterns, give the impression of abstract art from up close and photo-realistic figurative art from a distance. Interested in creating a perfect balance between pop art and fine art, Stone conveys a sense of complexity in his artworks.
