Paintings by Tang Da Wu features 20 ink works completed between the period of 2005 and 2015 by one of Singapore’s most iconic contemporary figures, Tang Da Wu (b. 1943, Singapore – ). Best known for his thought-provoking performance and installation art, Tang’s work has achieved critical acclaim in the region. Throughout the evolvement of his practice in the last four decades, Tang has remained actively engaged in a wide array of media, including ink painting. As with his performance and installation art, Tang’s painting often examines concepts relating to traditions and mythologies; his ink expression drastically breaks away from the traditional confines of the medium, choosing instead to demonstrate and expand the subtleties of rice paper and ink aesthetics in a vibrant, poetic manner.
