Shih Yun Yeo

Shih Yun Yeo

Born: 1976

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

YEO Shih Yun (1976, Singapore) graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1998 with a Bachelor degree in Business Administration. She then joined LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts and completed a Diploma in Communication Design in 2001, prior to her pursuit of the Post Baccalaureate Programme in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002.

Professionally, Yeo is known to reinterpret the very act of ink painting with striking results. Her experimentations with the fusion of the traditional form and contemporary mediums, such as new media or performance art, have garnered much acclaim, including a commission by the Singapore Art Museum in 2011. Her “Conversations with trees” painting was nominated for Sovereign Asian Art Prize Finalists and awarded People's Choice Award in 2012, with her painting auctioned by Christie's Asia. She also won the UOB Painting of the Year Competition (Distinction in Abstract category) in 1999 & 2007. Additionally, Yeo has held exhibitions in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Tokyo & New York on the international scene. Her recent commissions include National Gallery Singapore, ‘My Ink-credible Adventure’ and solo exhibition at Esplanade titled ‘Chance Encounters’ in 2021. Her NFT video art titled “Mind Ink Painting Machine” is part of "Generative Art and the Future" NFT Art exhibition in Shenzhen in Sept 2021 hosted by Poly Auction China (China’s largest auction house). This is the first special auction of generative art in China, which will bring together 20 works of generative art from 17 digital artists around the world.

In 2017, her first book, INKPULSE: the art of Yeo Shih Yun, was published. The volume conceptualizes Yeo's pulsating pursuit for new depths and new perspectives within and beyond the realm of Abstract Expressionism.

YEO is also the Founder of the independent art space “INSTINC” in Singapore, where she currently lives and works.
