Chess art by a bodybuilder

An interesting painting by a
body builder who's also a chess master!

Hello Everyone,

It's not everyday you find someone who is equally focused on developing both the body and the mind. Add to that a heightened sense of creativity and artistic sensibilities and you could well be talking about Roger J. Morin.

We found his very interesting art gallery on the Internet.

Morin writes: "My art involves communication, creativity, and diversity.
Communication is critical to me, since my ideas come from a deeper place than words.

Creativity helps me resolve ambiguity by combining unlike elements and ideas. My basic design heightens this tension by emphasizing unequal proportions.

My painting reflects my own diversity. In addition to being an artist, I am a chess master and a bodybuilder. In my work, I use ideas from all these areas. Further, I chose styles and techniques that fit the idea of each painting rather than fitting the idea to traditional techniques. As a result, my pieces are very different from each other in look and subject, and my style is hard to define in traditional terms."

You can check Morin's cyber art gallery here.
