Expressions of Modern Art

We are Canadian aritsts Shinya and Scott. We have sold over 1000 paintings, sketches and prints through Shinya Style. They can be found in the homes of many private and corporate collections in the USA, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, China, Korea and Europe. See recently sold paintings by visiting the "Original Painting" section of the site for reference.  

We always love making beautiful things. As designers, we know the value of a properly set room. What most people don't know is how adding an original painting to a room can completely transform your experience and feeling of that room. Displaying original paintings adds texture, colour and value to your home. 

Much of our artwork is based on the principles of Feng Shui. A belief that the world resonates a universal energy call Chi. We use colours and symbols to generate positive Chi energy and to protect oneself and family against negative Chi energy. To most people paintings are just works of art. However, from a Feng Shui point of view, placing such art can create positive changes in your home and work environment. You can pick different subjects to enhance the atmosphere of a space and to provide either luck, good wishes, hope, gratitude, friendship or love. Some common subjects seen in our work are:  :

The Lotus Flower or Water Lily - The lotus flower is associated with a health, fortune, luck and a harmonious home.

Peony - The Peony is associated with love and romance. The Peony is considered a metaphor for female beauty. Its also related to enhancing the bond between a couple. 

Poppies - Poppies represent the loyalty and faith between lovers

Koi Fish - Koi bring luck and wealth. This fish also represents harmony and balance and is usually depicted in groups of 2, 3,6 or 9 fish together.

Cherry Blossom -  Cherry Blossoms are used to bring luck and fortune. They are also associated with improvements in love and health.

Nude Figures -  In Feng Shui, nude paintings are associated with the element of fire and are full of Yin energy which intensifies good fortune and brings recognition luck and respect.

Landscapes -  In Feng Shui, landscape paintings represent peace and comfort.

And finally just a few words to all the people who have supported us in our life journey. There are so many to mention but they have all been there, in some way helping to support and comfort us when we were happy or sad. You are like angels to us and we feel them around and supporting us even when they are far away. We always believe "when you do good things, good things come to you". 

Love to all of you….we know who you are.
