With around 30 wood engravings on exhibit, this show is based on the calligraphy of pioneer master calligrapher Tsue Ta Dee. Cheh Kai Hon studied calligraphy under Tsue, and has for the past few decades, remained devoted to the craft of Chinese calligraphy and wood engraving. These engravings were a culmination of 3-4 years of effort in consolidating and engraving content based on series of intelligent, expressive works by master calligrapher, Tsue.
Born in Beijing in 1903, Tsue resided in Singapore since 1946 and was among the few calligraphers in Southeast Asia who were adept in various scripts including the ancient oracle script. Considered a master calligrapher among the pioneer generation of Chinese artists in Southeast Asia, he took in various students in Singapore and Malaysia, including Yong Cheong Tai and Cheh.
Cheh is a veteran artist known for his wood engraving artworks and has participated in various solo and group shows, including in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
