Lives and Works: Singapore
Anthony Chua Say Hua is a highly prominent artist who has amassed many awards and accolades under his belt. While he works primarily with Chinese ink, his art practice is informed by the Western Modernist aesthetics. As articulated by the artist, "My paintings’ strength lies in the bold use of brush strokes with various effects created by different types of brushes such as the less conventional feather brushes. My creative processes are informed by both traditional Chinese ink and Modern Western strategies such as markmaking. The objective is to enable new artistic surfaces to be created and expressiveness articulated."
Apart from abstract compositions, the artist has also churned out a fascinating collection of works based on contemporary subjects like urban landscapes and old buildings. A former winner of the prestigious Young Artist Award in 2001 by the National Arts Council, Anthony has more than 12 solo exhibitions under his name, and had participated in more than 15 group exhibitions over the years.
