Known for his newest style of acrylic paintings of tropical islands and gentle nude figures, The Art Fellas’ exclusive artist Yeo Siak Goon is introducing limited edition prints of artist-selected works.
Born in Malaysia in 1957, Yeo moved to Singapore when he was 14 years old to study art, and has since resided here. Yeo has developed his own unique style which sets him apart from other artists of his generation.
The tranquil aqua-toned beaches in Yeo’s paintings herald back to a simple childhood in Malaysia. The bareness of the supple female bodies allows them to ease inconspicuously into the natural surroundings, flanked by large palm trees and carved wooden banisters. Working with tropical hues of orange and gold, Yeo highlights every graceful curve and crevice, showcasing his understanding of his environment and the female body. The serene scenes draw onlookers onto the shaded beach fronts of the tropical island, stirring a longing in them to shed their inhibitions and shake off the restraints of the chaotic city life to get back in touch with nature.
Besides Yeo Siak Goon’s recent solo exhibition “the affair” with The Art Fellas in February, he has had three other solo shows and has represented Singapore in several exhibitions overseas in China, Japan, Korea, France and New York. He has received three Tan Tsze Chor Awards as well as the First Prize in UOB’s Painting of the Year competition. Yeo’s works are collected by the National Gallery Singapore; ARMA Museum, Bali; Four Seasons Hotel, Chicago, USA; United Overseas Bank; International Enterprise Singapore; IBM Singapore; American Club; Cathay Organization; Pontiac Land; Capella Singapore and many local and overseas collectors.
An esteemed artist with a distinct individual style, Yeo’s introduction of limited edition prints for artist-selected works will appeal to many new and seasoned collectors alike.
