“Midnight Blue” by Raymond Chow

28×28 inches | acrylic on canvas | framed original
$189/month lease | $8,000 CAD

 

“Midnight Blue” is an original work by Raymond Chow created in the late 1980s depicting a woman sitting on a table, exposing her back side. She was a mysterious model, in which, Chow wanted to capture that mysteriousness of her by not showing her front side and leaving the viewer to wonder who she might be.

It’s noticeable to see that she is posing for the painting shown through her both her hands firmly placed on the table. It’s interesting to see that even though it seems she is nude, she still wears a couple pieces of jewelry on her left hand.

 

Artist Statement

“I wanted to be an architect but I found I could draw a crooked line better than a straight one.  So, I thought I’d better become an artist.”

 

Raymond Chow

Raymond Chow won early recognition in his teenage years after winning many art competitions.  This led to many art dealers visiting his parent’s home, ready to buy a Raymond Chow original.

In the mid-1950’s, Raymond began his art career creating black ink drawings of Vancouver buildings. His drawings sold for around $50 in those days which he created using his favorite 25 cent ball point ink pen.

Throughout his career, Raymond met many figureheads who have commissioned him for paintings.  Some have included Clint Eastwood, Sunny and Cher, and Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.

Other collector’s have included Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Paul Anka, Raymond Burr, and Gordon Lightfoot.

Raymond Chow has also exhibited with prominent contemporary artists including AJ Casson, Andrew Wyeth, and many more. 

He has had a lengthy art career of over 60 years where his artwork has gone from art galleries across Canada to as far as the Royal Palace of India in Rajasthan. 

Now, he enjoys his time traveling around Eastern Canada and supporting the Arts.
