  • Catalogue Essay

    In this work, Tay Bak Chiang continues to push the boundaries and contemporize the genre of Chinese painting through the use of acrylic and pigments on canvas. It encapsulates the artist’s enquiry into classical Chinese ink art, introducing new perspectives in the portrayal of nature in order to evoke a sense of poetry and inner emotions.

    Tay Bak Chiang (b. 1973, Singapore) graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore in 1995 and studied at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, from 1997–1998. He was awarded the First Prize in the Chinese Painting category in the 19th and 22nd United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Competitions (2000 and 2003 respectively). In 2002, he received the Young Artist Award from the National Arts Council of Singapore.
