  • Artist’s Statement

    Ai Shah was born and grew up in Japan and moved to Australia with her husband in 2005.
    She started studying oil painting under well-known Australian artist Marcel Desbiens. She progressed quickly and in 2010 won the inaugural Lethbridge 10 000 Art Award with a small-scale water study. She had her first exhibition of paintings in 2009 with KiLN Gallery, Brisbane. This was followed by another two solo shows in 2011 as well as exhibiting her works at art fairs in Sydney and Melbourne. She is fast developing a reputation for her exceptional painting skill and compositions.

    “When I paint, I find my everyday concerns fall away and I’m left with only the joy of colour and canvas.” - Ai Shah
