Organised by entrepreneur Dr. George Quek Meng Tong’s Sky One Art Investment Private Limited, this exhibition presents over 100 ink and oil masterpieces, showcasing the artist’s mastery of Chinese ink brushwork with an ingenious integration of Western oil painting techniques, as well as his exploration from realism to abstraction. Tan’s unique style and comprehensive oeuvre establish him as a distinctive name in his field. This exhibition serves as an immersive journey into the realm of art, offering profound insights into the artist’s creative evolution. It is definitely an art feast not to be missed. Tan depicts a wide range of themes such as birds and flowers, animals, urban scenes and landscapes. Employing varied techniques from bold, freehand brushwork (xieyi) to meticulous line drawing (baimiao), from abbreviated strokes and rich colours to a freer style at his heart’s desire, these works transcend the limitations of time and themes. “Untitled” is, therefore, the name of this exhibition, celebrating the unfettered spirit of his art.
