Hometown: Malaysia

Based in: Singapore

 

Andy Yang (b. 1973, Malaysia) is a visual artist based in Singapore.

Andy Yang is a multi-disciplinary artist known for his abstract visual & sound experimentations. The explorations between visual art and music led him to the creation of works under musical stimuli with The Observatory. In Anitya 1 (2011) that exposes the process of his art-making in full cycle, from creation to destruction at the Earl Lu Gallery of the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore. And again, for the latest ArtScience Late feature, Ceremony (2019) together with SA TheCollective, the artist celebrated the experiences of human childbirth through an energetic sound performance set against an elaborate visual art installation set.

Artist Statement
After the first few initial figurative investigations, Yang gradually moved to the abstract plane. He felt that this was the most fertile ground for his artistic research, essentially because of the freedom afforded to him in exploring colours and forms. It was not long before Yang became seduced by the flamboyancy and immense power of colours. It was as if all the power of the equatorial sun had landed on his canvases bringing to life the other colours around and beneath it. Furthermore, Yang considered the abstract more suitable to respond to his longstanding passion for music.


"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colours, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential." Wassily Kandinsky

About Andy Yang

What inspires you?

Currently it's mortality, human relationships and nature. Fragile and inevitable.

Describe your creative process.

Most of the time I would pick up an idea or topic from the collection from my sketchbook. Rough ideas that I have recorded throughout the years waiting for me to work on them. I will work on them for a while and see if they are worth pursuing before I dedicate more time to develop them.

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Conversational, emotive and alive.

Claude Monet, David Hockney and Howard Hodgkin are the all time favourites. Of late, it has to be Cecily Brown, Liu Xiao Dong and Goh Beng Kwan.

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

This has to be my pencil, portable watercolour kit and sketchbook to record my ideas on the go.

Always give your all in whatever you do. Don't waste time. Life may be taken away from you at any time.
