Tay Bak Chiang


Biography

Tay Bak Chiang, born in 1973, graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 1995 and studied at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, in 1997. He was awarded the First Prize in the Chinese Painting category in the 19th and 22nd United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Competitions (2000 and 2003 respectively). In 2002 he received the Young Artist Award from the National Arts Council of Singapore.

Bak Chiang’s work is rooted in Chinese ink painting but should bear the imprint of the environment and reflect the spirit of contemporary times. His Stone series began after a walk through a nature reserve in Singapore, where they seemed to emanate a cool stillness amongst the greenery. He uses a mix of pigments and Chinese ink and colours to create his works.
