Rebel with A Paintbrush: TheeOHmy Video Interview

You know that feeling when you've come across something that is literally a raw gem? Something you know that can and will probably become the next big thing? That's what I felt when I first came across Tiffiane Chin, better known as "TheeOHmy". The pint size artist, paints larger than life new school masterpieces that will leave you amazed.

She's never one to bite her tongue and her artwork is an explosion of emotions, life experiences, and just raw unadulterated talent. Her talents don't just stop with great pop, abstract, complementary art work but she's also wicked with a camera! TheeOHmy is the epitome of the art student who said fuck the rules and did it her way. And quiet frankly, we wouldn't want it any other way.

video of TheeOHmy responding to my questions which are listed below

Anyone who has seen your work can tell its screams out that your not like anyone else, that your style is your own. What do you believe causes this? How did you end up developing such a unique look with your art?

Not only do you paint, but you also do photography work. Which artistic expression do you feel more comfortable with, or should I say more attracted? How did you get into both?

Your known for doing live painting, me personally I've struggled with the idea of painting in front of others. So what is the feelings you get doing live installs? Have you ever had a moment where the piece just didn't come out right or vice versa?

Whats the process of TheeOHmy when creating art? I know a lot of artist have their rituals.

Do you feel that Tiffanie and TheeOHmy are different people? How would you describe yourself to people?

Who are your influences, what are your favorite pieces by them?

You yourself have some incredible pieces, what are your personal favorites?

Do you study the history of art? How would you compare yourself to past artist, is there anyone in particular you feel you most resemble?

Whats the feeling like of tagging? I remember when we first linked up you mention waring with another artist. What was your most exciting time doing it?'

People can always claim that they love all their work, but the reality is their are always some occasion where as artist you create something that isn't up to par. Have you have that moment(s)?

What are the reactions you get from people about your work? How does that make you feel?

How does your family, friends feel about you being a artist? I know plenty of times people can't understand what it means to be a artist. All the sacrifices that must be made, do you feel supported?

Have you ever had that moment where you felt this was pointless? What kept you moving is so, and what advice would you give anyone else pursuing art?

2011 is a wrap, from when you started to today what are the highlights of your career as an artist? Do you feel you've made an impact?

What's your plans for 2012 and beyond? Any special projects?

Lastly, if you could only choose one word to describe you what would it be?
