The Artist Speaks

Chua Ek Kay

Low Sze Wee

One of Singapore’s most prominent ink practitioners, Chua Ek Kay innovated Chinese ink painting with an inimitably understated perspective and a spare elegance. His paintings, from iconic scenes of Singapore’s ever-changing streets to abstract representations of nature, were informed by a lifetime of tireless study and rumination. The products of this process take centre stage in this title, which explores Chua’s artistic vision through never before published writings and sketches, shedding new light on his life and practice.

One of Singapore’s most prominent ink practitioners, Chua Ek Kay innovated Chinese ink painting with an inimitably understated perspective and a spare elegance. His paintings, from iconic scenes of Singapore’s ever-changing streets to abstract representations of nature, were informed by a lifetime of tireless study and rumination. The products of this process take centre stage in this title, which explores Chua’s artistic vision through never before published writings and sketches, shedding new light on his life and practice.

The Artist Speaks series presents an intimate look at artists through their words and works, tracing the ideas, influences and experiences—as told by artists themselves—that constitute a vision.
