Saturated in color, humorous in theme, the paintings of self-taught artist Thomas Chat are a complete delight. His background is unexpected. In 1997 he attended a university in London where he studied chemistry. He began painting in 2004, and this UK artist, who was raised in Hong Kong, has been heavily influenced by the Colonial melting pot of his youth. He spent his summer holidays often walking around the street and hills alone, absorbing this unique culture.
Thomas continues to travel the world and has returned to Hong Kong often and thrives in it's familiarity. He acknowledges that painting is his first love and his work certainly reflects the joy he finds.
