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.

Supah Mashup Art Party: Leslie Levings & Shing Yin Khor

forest beast

This forest beast by Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor is too spectacular for words. In addition to preparing for The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts, Leslie and Shing collaborated on this sleepy forest beast and fatty friends for Supah Mashup Art Party.

Leslie sculpted the big guy with its antlers and also painted the antlers. Shing added the fattybugs and mushrooms and provided the overall paint job. I love how this piece combines both of their styles so seamlessly.
