Calvin Lai's art is a mixture of medicine, meditation, and personal growth. Through constantly drawing, Calvin’s work began to breath, and his fascination with value and perspective led him to become a student of realism. Since then oil paints have become his main medium. Lai’s work has been shown nationally in galleries, group exhibitions and juried shows. He has completed a large number of commissions, and his paintings have appeared in national and international publications.
Throughout his career, Calvin Lai has expanded his focus from figurative and portraiture to a variety of subjects. Now he has no borders to what he chooses to paint, and he is driven to capture everything around him through his paints, brushes, and determination.
