Six Talents Art Exhibition is an extraordinary visual art exhibition put together by six talented artists – Siew Hock Meng, Miau Wong, Ng Yak Whee, Fan Shao Hua, Zhu Hong and Jose Martinez.
Delving into the multiplicity of this artistic collaboration, each artist has a vastly different experience and origin, with each of their original works reflecting their unique personalities.
Ng Yak Whee’s works often reflect the flux of life, evoking a myriad of emotions with different colours as well as the free and expressive brush-strokes. His paintings are composed of different elements but are related to one another, unifying the whole painting. With more than 35 years of experience in the fine arts, Ng successfully imbues his paintings with poetic nuances. Over the years, he has won many accolades, the most recent being the 2016 Dr Tan Tze Chor Art Award.
José Martinez is a favourite at the Singapore Contemporary Art Exhibition and Affordable Art Fair Singapore. Well-known for his exuberant, fearless approach and powerful art creations of cityscapes, landmarks, and architecture, he often invites his audience to experience the explosive energy of the world’s famed mega-cities including New York, London and Singapore.
Fan Shao Hua’s journey in art has embraced a profound understanding of the essential nuances and distinctions between Eastern and Western artistic concepts and techniques. Over the years, Fan has developed and created his own unique artistic vision style and sensibilities. He paints in a refreshing myriad of colours that harmonize in synergy. He has staged 29 solo exhibitions to date, and even taught at several academic institutions.
Zhu Hong is an active member of the arts scene in Singapore, playing a role in many local organizations such as the Federation of Art Societies, the Singapore Art Society and the Singapore Watercolour Society. Born in Dalian, China, the artist has been living in Singapore since 1997, with many of his works carrying significant Singaporean identity such as Diary of Singapore Street Scene and Digitally Tiong Bahru.
Siew Hock Meng is a Malaysian artist who was born in 1942. He has an interest in human forms, he explores a wide range of subjects and themes such as culture of places like Bali, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar and Cambodia. Other than his interest in human forms, vibrant tropical colours as well as artistic and cultural diversity of the region, he often shows a deeper concern for the social, cultural and environmental realities that people in the region have to face.
Last but not the least, Miau Wong has held countless of solo exhibitions, such as ‘Miau Wong New Work’ Kuala Lumpur, ‘Cosmic Grandeur’ Singapore, ‘Beyong Reality’ Kuala Lumpur, ‘Landscape in Abstraction’ Penang and ‘The Colours of My Dreams’ Kuala Lumpur, just to name a few.
