Exhibition

My Story II

Exhibiting Artists: Wong Shih Yaw

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 06 Jan 2011 - 16 Jan 2011

As befits a sequel to his well-received autobiographical show early in 2010, My Story II continues with a montage of relatively more light-hearted vignettes from the life of Singaporean painter Wong Shih Yaw, with the majority of paintings drawn from fond memories of his childhood or adolescent years, as opposed to traumatic adult incidents. Presented in ‘glorious technicolour’ (in that the artist has used more vivid, stronger colours this time around), the paintings continue to be executed in a graphic woodcut style reminiscent of nostalgic scenes of social realism from the early to mid-20th century, but we also observe the series evolving into a more painterly and symbolic direction.

Artist

  • 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.
