Tiny Fairybugs by Shing Yin Khor

Here’s another look at a few of Shing Yin Khor’s painting for Supahcute Science Fair. She shared additional information about these pieces:

Fairybugs! These paintings are about 3.5”x4.5”, so they’re pretty teeny! I wanted to paint a couple small and affordable things for the Supahcute Science Fair show. I finished 7 paintings, and they’re all under $100.

I had no idea that the paintings are so tiny! I’m a sucker for all things small and cute.

Supahcute Science Fair opens at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on Saturday, March 8 (6-10pm). Hope you guys can join us the opening reception! If you’ve already signed up for my email list, you’ll automatically receive the online preview link before the show opens.
