'Curiosity and exploration is what makes it a joy to be an artist'

Danish artist Charlotte Donvang is an artist, speaker, transformational trainer and healer. She has lived in England, Thailand and Malaysia and returned to Denmark in 2021 after 28 years overseas. 
Born into a family of artists, she has since 2009 exhibited in Denmark, Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and India in both group and solo shows.
She is inspired by ancient wisdom and the simple art of observation of people, nature and life. She questions what immediately meets the eye in search of a deeper truth. She looks at the essence of life in general while encouraging you to look into yours and question the way you look at life.
Donvang’s last solo show during Singapore Contemporary in 2017 displayed profound 3D paintings depicting the multi-dimensional facets of life, and emotions in particular: love, hate, anger, joy. Going deep into her inner Universe, she impressed the audience with her strong contemporary abstract expressionism.
Donvang’s latest series has shifted from abstract expressionism to a contemporary style where voluptuous women are conquering their own inhibitions in a personal fight to be who they are. Just as her previous works, this latest series is a reflection of Donvang’s inner journey.

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

I love colours! They express more than words and it’s a fabulous international communication tool speaking directly to the heart independently of language, age and culture. Paintings have the same magical abilities. It’s certainly my experience after approximately 28 years overseas, mostly in Asia.

I am inspired by life and I find my motives in those energies and emotions we as humans always surround ourselves with. My art is also an illustration of the ups and downs we experience in life. 
Colour is an extremely important part of my life. They have healing powers and that's what I also feel during the creation process... an immense peace falls over me during and after creating an artwork.

It’s the big questions in life I reflect on in my art. I also question the ’truth’ by digging under the surface. Through my paintings I explore how to live a happy life. My passion is to spread joy with art, colour and creativity.
Life is a journey... and so is art!
