Lives and Works: Singapore
Singapore-based Australian artist and Channel NewsAsia Presenter Yvonne Yong creates art pieces to let her mind explore and unleash her creativity.
'To me, a good painting is all about texture, balance, colour and letting go but in a controlled way that is pleasing to the eye'.
Her most recent solo exhibition, ‘Move’ (2014), was at Artistry Gallery, Singapore, and featured dynamic, fluid and bold pieces, combining influences from the East and the West.
The pieces are a progression from her artwork in previous solo shows ‘Life’s Essentials’ (2011) and ‘Earth’ (2012) which also captured movement in people and nature.
Yvonne regularly takes part in group exhibitions and does commissioned works of art for private sale and public spaces.
