Artist

Wong Shih Yaw

Singapore


Wong Shih Yaw has swung from emotive expressionism in his early days at the Artists Village and first solo exhibition, Worldly People (1996), to the allegorical Christian realism begun in his second solo, Shalom (1999), and continued in the group show, Feed the Birds (2000), and third solo, In Thee (2004). Life’s Interpretations (2005) was his fourth solo show, documenting a decade of drawings, but also introducing a series of interesting line drawings on canvas, which influenced the illustrative nature of his acrylic paintings in Out of the Grey (2006), his fifth solo show. Shih Yaw continued in the same illustrative vein in his sixth solo The Stage (2009), his seventh My Story (2010), and his eighth My Story II, the last two collections of which are rendered in a graphic woodcut style. With My Story III - Redemption of the Fallen (2012), Shih Yaw returns to his symbolist roots of metaphor and meaning.
