Born in Singapore in 1979, Aaron Gan graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Deanâ€™s List) from the University of Western Australia in 2003.

Ever since he was a child, Paul has been illustrating and drawing. Growing up with cats also means that his two passions are inextricably linked. He experimented with different forms of expressions (from portraiture and figurative to pop and abstract) before finding his element in his "Catmasutra" series, which inevitably continues the catty tales of his cats, Halo and Angel. His approach to art resembles the personality of the cat - playful, curious, unpredictable and quirky.
Singaporean artist Ling Yang Chang discovered his affinity for traditional Chinese ink painting since his schooling days and has since immersed himself into a select plethora of art forms and mediums while staying true to his roots. A graduate in Chinese Studies and Economics at the National University of Singapore, recognition came early when he was selected for the Shell Discovery Exhibition of 1992, and obtained First Prize (Chinese Ink Painting) in the Dr Tan Tsze Chor Art Award
Singapore-based artist Lu Yifei hails from Jinan in Shandong Province, China. The common thread running through his works is Yifei's childhood fantasy world. He combines personalised sentiments about life with cartoon symbolism, with each character representing a different genre of heroism.
Oeur Sokuntevy studied painting at the Phare Ponleu Selpak in Battambang and moved to Phnom Penh in 2007. Sokuntevy has had much interest in her work as one of the very few female contemporary artists currently showing in Cambodia. Besides Cambodia, she has exhibited in the USA, South Korea and Singapore. Sokuntevyâ€™s work is included in art collections of the Singapore Embassy (Cambodia) and the Singapore Art Museum. Her work has appeared in magazines and newspapers including Art Asia Pacific,
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.

Yeo Siak Goon æ¨æ˜”é“¶ 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 oneâ€™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
Zhang Kexin (born Harbin, China in 1957) graduated from the art department of Harbinâ€™s Pedagogical University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1982, and worked as the editor of Heilongjiangâ€™s Provincial Fine Art Publishing House in 1989. His paintings were shown at the Chinese national art exhibition during 1984 to 1989. From 1992, he became a "nomadic artist", travelling to Russia and holding a touring exhibition in national art museums of all the Eastern European countries. He has made ac
Art has been a passion for Frank Zhen since his youth, who would as a child spend hours drawing on paper. In the past few years, he has experienced an intense urge to paint to express his feelings, and has undertaken a number of short courses in painting from 2006 to 2011. His first solo exhibition Tales of the Red Merlion met with good media attention and commercial success.
