The movement of planets in the solar system symbolizes eternal order and balance. In the pitch-black expanse of the universe, these planets emit beautiful and unique radiance, illuminating the darkness. The Sun, Earth, Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Mars, Saturn, and Uranus collectively maintain the cosmic order.
The Blue Whale Design Team, in collaboration with sculptor Johnny Chen, introduces the “Star Diamond” series of limited edition artworks. Drawing inspiration from the radiance of stars, they infuse the art of sculpture into the forefront of the entranceway. The “Star Diamond” series represents the refinement of craftsmanship, where the strength and depth of each stroke cannot be adjusted or erased. This uniqueness grants each artwork its rare quality.
The Blue Whale “Star Diamond” series is presented as limited edition pieces, each with an exclusive serial number, the artist’s signature, and a certificate of authenticity for collectors. As the artist’s life experiences evolve, different stages bring forth distinct style variations, imbuing each piece with a unique soul. It is recommended that you begin your collection early.
Johnny Chen is an artist born and raised in Taiwan. He attended the prestigious Taiwan Academy of Fine Arts – Renaissance Fine Arts during high school. For his university education, he studied at Bangkok University in Thailand. During his time in Thailand, he absorbed cultures and perspectives from around the world, with the creative and rich thinking of the Thai people significantly influencing his worldview.
Johnny, who had a passion for drawing from a young age, exhibited a unique talent that allowed him to explore uncharted artistic territories. During his academic years, he met his Ukrainian classmate, Michael. On his father’s birthday, Michael asked Johnny to create a portrait as a birthday gift. Johnny completed this portrait using only a simple ballpoint pen, leaving a deep impression on Michael’s father. In appreciation, Michael’s father invited him to visit his stainless steel factory.
Michael’s father recognized Johnny’s creative talent and suggested using a grinding wheel not just for traditional purposes but as a tool for creating artwork. This serendipitous encounter marked the beginning of Johnny’s journey into the world of metal art sculpture.
“The people of Thailand take special pride in their rich cultural heritage, seamlessly blending tradition with modern styles to create unique and inspiring environments. This harmonious fusion of old and new elements provides endless opportunities for creativity and inspiration.” — Johnny.
Johnny’s unique sense of beauty and perspective, combined with his masterful skills, give birth to a new style that merges industry and art. He infuses warmth and soul into the cold, rigid metal, elevating metal craftsmanship to different levels.
“I hope to contribute to the Taiwanese art scene. Taiwan possesses rich cultural assets that deserve to be showcased to the world. I firmly believe that the beauty and values conveyed through art can have a positive impact and inspire Taiwan. I aspire to inspire others to value Taiwanese art, enhance society and the human spirit through an understanding of art, and bring about positive change. Together, I hope we can make Taiwanese art and culture shine even brighter on the international stage.” — Johnny.
