你會否覺得古典藝術品在其悠久的文化和歷史方面有點令人生畏？ 畢竟這些高雅的古典藝術品並非人人皆能讀透。 香港插畫家陳蔚以她獨特的肖像畫風格，拉近了高雅藝術與大眾的距離。
Have you ever felt that highbrow classic artworks are slightly intimidating in terms of its long, respectable culture and history? An uneasy sense of insecurity that classical is beyond your depths to comprehend and appreciate. Hong Kong illustrator Mandy Chan used her distinctive style in portrait painting, shortening the distance between highbrow art and the general public.
陳蔚的所有作品都具有鮮明的個人風格，例如不合比例的頭部，小而寬的五官，從而營造出像孩子般的外觀。 她早期對著名藝術作品的二次創作獲得了公眾的廣泛喜愛。 她獨特的風格給高雅的古典藝術品帶來了生動活潑的洗禮，為蒙娜麗莎和梵高的自畫像添加了可愛活潑的一面。
All of Chan’s works acquire a distinctive style, a disproportionated head with small and wide features that creates a child-like appearance. Her early recreations of famous artworks gained a lot of love from the public. The unique touch in her illustrations gave an animated and lively wash over the highbrow classical artworks. The initial stern-looking appearance of Mona Lisa and Vincent van Gogh are replaced by dainty features with a lovable and cute twist.
Chan is also well-known for her paintings that are reminiscent of a child’s fascination for her surroundings, with its strong theme of hope, nature and curiosity. She reminds us of our long-forgotten happiness of childhood with a series of wild imaginations and boundless curiosity for the world. Children are said to be filled with courage and endless curiosity. Without the chains of responsibility and sufficient knowledge of danger, they are always eager to embark on new adventures and journeys.
