Born in Singapore, Ieo Gek Ching is an emerging young artist with a graduate Honors degree in Fine Arts from LaSalle College of the Arts. Inspired and influenced by the hybridism of the natural environment, and by the different idiosyncrasies and characteristics of each animal species, Gek Ching aptly expresses her concern on the ecological environment through her art.
With an advocacy for the unique and unusual, Gek Ching continues to develop her distinct drawing style with a more pronounced and singular use of colour, breathing a new life into her latest animal hybrid series. Their highly intricate nature unfolds and evolves upon her specially prepared paper, resembling the expressions of their living ancestors, that is both startling and beautiful.
Having already exhibited at various international shows from New York to Australia, Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore, you can already find Gek Ching’s work in many private collections around the world.
