Lo­ca­tion: Aus­tralia Web: www.artof­cai.com Em ail: caiyen.tse@gmail.com MEDIA: Pho­to­shop Cai’s for­mal ed­u­ca­tion in ar­chi­tec­ture even­tu­ally de­vel­oped into a ca­reer in art and il­lus­tra­tion, as his in­ter­est for cre­at­ing imag­i­na­tive worlds grew.

“I’m inspired by great sto­ries, both epic nar­ra­tives of he­roes and mon­sters, and tales from my fa­ther of life as a young boy,” he says. “I’m al­ways search­ing for the ad­ven­ture in the mun­dane, spin­ning it into a vis­ual nar­ra­tive that might take the viewer through a jour­ney of the mind’s eye.”

Cai re­veals that he loves telling sto­ries through the stroke of his brush, and is look­ing for­ward to where this pas­sion will take him.

1 Por­trait Study “I wanted to fo­cus on a tight paint­ing, ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent brushes, dig­i­tal paint­ing tech­niques and edges. I also wanted to see how well I could por­tray mood and at­mos­phere, with that par­tic­u­lar light­ing setup and all the sub­tle colour changes in the flesh tones that came with it.”

2 Hope Walks “This im­age was pro­duced as part of a per­sonal pro­ject cre­at­ing vis­ual adap­ta­tions of cer­tain scenes in The Night An­gel Tril­ogy se­ries of nov­els by Brent Weeks. It’s one of my favourite books.”

3 Alm ost There “Painted dur­ing the long hia­tus be­tween sea­sons two and three of Nick­elodeon’s TMNT an­i­mated show. I wanted this im­age to tell a story about the broth­erly re­la­tion­ship be­tween the tur­tles dur­ing this try­ing pe­riod of their ad­ven­tures.”
