Visual Arts Centre will be hosting an exhibition of ink and wash works by four of Singapore’s national treasures – Ling Cher Eng, Phua Cheng Pue, Fan Chang Tien and Liu Kang – from October 5 to October 11, 2023, 11AM to 8PM. The exhibition will run for seven days from October 5 to October 11, featuring the early ink works of the four painters during their lifetime, including calligraphy, birds and flowers, landscapes and figures. A total of more than 60 posthumous works of the painters.
The exhibition is well supported by the painters’ families, who have come up with works they have treasured for many years, giving us the opportunity to display the painters’ posthumous works to the public for a visit, so that art lovers will have the opportunity to appreciate the authenticity of these late painters, learn from the artists, and appreciate the excellent works of these four late painters’ painters at the same time as we all join together to remember these late painters and commemorate the contributions that they have made to the arts in Singapore. We will learn from the painting techniques and styles of our predecessors, and pass on the Chinese tradition of ink painting to the next generation.
This exhibition seeks to showcase the wonderful, beautiful, and signature artworks of the four late artists who are highly accomplished artists and known for their individual art style. With over fifty artworks presented, we hope to present a wide selection of the best artworks made available for acquisition and purchase.
