The watercolour series ‘My Travel Sojourn’ by Chan Chang How is currently on display at the Public Art Space at Pan Pacific Singapore. The exhibition showcases Chan’s rich and vibrant watercolours portraying the many sights and impressions he gathered during his journeys through Southeast Asia and to the edges of China, India and Nepal.
Chan graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1965 and witnessed first-hand the growth and development of Singapore. His works capture the vanishing trade and nostalgic lifestyle of Singapore as she developed from a sleepy fishing village to the bustling cosmopolitan city she is today. Known for his sketches of old Singapore, Chinatown and the Singapore River, second generation Singaporean artist Chan has an eye for unusual angles that influences the composition of his paintings.
Chan has received various awards over the years for his watercolour works, though he is equally accomplished in Chinese ink and oil.
