Chua Chon Hee

  • Born 1960 in Singapore

  • Graduated with Advanced Diploma, Western Art, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, 1982

Chua Chon Hee is a multidisciplinary local artist, who works extensively with ceramic, ink, and printmaking. Her art possesses the characteristic of a humble organicism as she strives to relate her artistic practice to traditions, while simultaneously making her explorations on art significant in a contemporary manner. Chon Hee continually plants herself amidst lush greenery and nature, which stimulates and enthuses her art. In addition, her works are rooted in the Zen thinking of "being in the moment", and Chon Hee chooses to portray these inspirations using physical objects like leaves or clay in their raw form. Thus, her works are entrenched in the traditional, yet shifts easily back to modernism if needed.

Having been heavily involved in fine arts education for the most parts of her professional life, Chon Hee is now dedicated to art-making and exploring new boundaries with her art.
