Artists

  • Foo Kwee Horng

    Singapore

    Foo Kwee Horng obtained his BA with Merit in Social Work and Japanese Studies at the National University of Singapore in 1993, and his Postgraduate Diploma in Education and MA (visual arts research) from the National Institute of Education, Singapore in 1997 and 2005 respectively.

    William Sim

    Singapore

    William started painting under the guidance of pioneer artist Tan Puay Tee at the age of 10. Through his mentorship, William studied colour and form. Over the years he has experimented with various media, but nature as a thematic study has never left his canvas. The worlds William creates find their roots in happiness. The subjects of his paintings are a blend of nature and mechanical objects: they depict, singly and as collectives, dreamscapes where positivity reigns.

    Andre Tan

    Singapore

    Andre Tan obtained his Diploma in Fine Arts (Painting) from the LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, Singapore (2000), his Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art with 1st Class Honors from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (2004) and returned to LASALLE for his Master of Arts in Fine Arts (2006). Andre is the recipient of the Judge’s Choice for UTGP08-Kenichiro Mogi Prize (2008, Japan), Studentship Scheme (2005) in LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, and also the Georgette Chen Arts Schola

    Tan Ai Ngin

    Singapore

    Tan Ai Ngin (born 1972, Singapore) obtained her Diploma in Fine Arts at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1996 and her Bachelor of Arts in Chinese painting at the Nanjing Arts College, China in 1999. She went on to complete a one-year course in visual arts at the School of Fine and Performing Arts Constantijn Huygens, in Kampen, The Netherlands in 2001. She has been collected by the Frans Walkate Archief in The Netherlands and the Tokyo office of the Singapore Tourism Board.

    Wong Shih Yaw

    Singapore

    Wong Shih Yaw has swung from emotive expressionism in his early days as a key member of the Artists Village in Jalan Ulu Sembawang, to allegorical Christian realism, and now has been painting largely in an illustrative graphic style for his past few solo shows. A graduate of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, the artist is heavily collected by the Singapore Art Museum, The National Art Gallery Singapore and several prominent collectors.

    Yeo Siak Goon

    Singapore

    Yeo Siak Goon 杨昔银 has an enduring fascination for the female form, whether decked in full costume regalia as in his Balinese dancers, or serenely bereft of clothing as in his sensual beachside nudes. Playing extensively with negative space, Siak Goon loves to conceal as much as he reveals, deliberately omitting key portions of his figures for one’s mind to connect limb to torso, and indulge in a game of visual peek-a-boo. Born in 1957, Malaysia, he presently lives and works in Singapo

    ZXEROKOOL

    Singapore

    ZXEROKOOL is the art moniker of Jonathan Leong, a Singapore based intergalactic ninja, practitioner of visual kung-fu and creative mayhem. His work can be described as a hyperkinetic blend of popular culture, digitalism, fantasy, science fiction, comic books and contemporary mythology.
