There are many different ways to create artwork. Chris Steinz from Amsterdam has combined painting with fashion design. He creates a piece of art, digitalises it, and then turns it into a design for a shirt or hoodie.
This week, Inspiro is busy with the Incarnate Leadership Workshop. Participants in the workshop are preparing to help lead Incarante 2022 and are taking in lots of rich information about ethnodoxology, arts, theology, and so much more. As we think about Incarnate this week, we are taking some time to catch up with our Incarnate alumni.
In a previous article, we alerted you to the opportunity for visual artists and musicians to submit their work for an arts outreach project in Belgium. Though submissions have since closed, we wanted to update you as to the progress of this project!
Last week, we saw how Jin was continuing to create in the midst of the pandemic. Today, we conclude our series with Jin, starting back at the beginning - with a recognition of calling and a challenge to consider yours. We are also sharing a special video put together by Jin's church (Island Evangelical Community Church) in which she shares her testimony.
On Tuesday, we learned about how the Lord continued to work in Jin's life after Incarnate, and we heard the beginning of how she has continued to work on her art during the pandemic. Today, we get to see up close what Jin has been working on during COVID - and it involves toilet paper! Enjoy Jin's words and artwork below and take in her God-honoring creativity.

I rekindled my passion for painting in 2016 when I switched from working full-time to part-time. A friend connected me with her art teacher, and, for practical reasons, I learned acrylic painting. Inspiration for my first painting was from the cover of a Christian book, sitting on the side-table next to my bed. It caught my attention, and “Psalm 23” became my first attempt. Learning by imitating is a good start for beginners. I began using Google to find images I could imitate. Very soon, painting Bible ideas became my focus. Eventually, I was thrilled to participate in the Singapore Bible Society’s Annual Art Competition for two years in a row, painting pieces on Hope and Promises in the Bible and People in Need in the Bible.
