artist KONG at The Other Art Fair LA by Saatchi Art
Entrepreneur, writer, digital creator and artist Carole Chainon creates her art under the atelier KONG brand and KONG artist name.
Chainon has a passion to share beauty with the world, one artwork at a time.
Her abstract works highlight the acceptance of Self.
Trauma happens when we’re not seen or heard and the body keeps a tally on those. Traumas and negative experiences are part of who we are and what makes us all unique. She wants to open the discussion on the true acceptance of Self as a whole, that flaws and shame are not to be hidden but to be accepted and highlighted.
Vulnerability is key to human connection, and to connect we must feel seen.
She explores the perfection humans seek in modern life through her ‘Quest for the perfect line’ series and captures the ephemeral beauty of flowers in her ‘Botanical Art’ series. More projects are coming up.
Chainon works primarily with acrylic, watercolors, watercolor pencils and iridescent paint. When she is not painting, she is digitally creating for virtual and augmented reality experiences.
Her digital artworks were also exhibited during Digital Art Month in Paris in June 2021.
KONG is a reference and tribute to her Laotian roots.
