Jon Tsoi

Born in China, artist Jon Tsoi moved to the United States in 1979 and studied at Montclair State University and The Art Students’ League of New York. He creates his mixed-media paintings while blindfolded—the result of what he sees as an intimate connection between meditation, spirituality, and healing with closed eyes. Tsoi relies on intuition while making each work, which often consists of knife-slashed canvas, rope, and a burst of colored paint. His work has been exhibited in New York, Florida, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
