Chew Fang Chin, acclaimed for his distinctive artistic style, skillfully elongates the human form and employs curving lines and highlighted shadows to create a semi-abstract, subdued atmosphere. His free-flowing use of color emphasizes both the individuality of his subjects and the rich cultural characteristics of Sarawak's ethnic groups. By merging Western and Eastern painting techniques, he has pioneered a unique style known as "Grass Paper" color ink painting, which combines bold black lines and splattering ink with the ambiance of traditional Chinese painting.


Chew's dynamic use of color and tone, along with his bold compositional deformations, vividly express his inner emotions and the profound beauty of Sarawak, culminating in a distinctive "Nanyang style."


His artwork over the past four decades can be shaped into four major collections, each capturing different aspects of cultural preservation and artistic innovation.
