Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

As an artist, the process of creating art can amass serious waste hence I reuse one of my many exploration works and reuse them wisely. Not only does it help me on waste reduction and allows me to freely continue creative pursuits while still being environmentally conscious. The climate crisis is a persistent issue. It impacts all of us and I hope my artwork on sustainability topics could send a reminder message to everyone on self awareness to the environment.

I used watercolor and colorpencil to paint the elephant on a torn page of a fairytale storybook and mounted it on a used artwork that I was exploring on. The back of the artwork, I was doing a study on resin pour on silverleaf. Unfortunately, it was a failed experiment and I did not discard it and decided to recycle and make it into a new art piece.

Artist Profile

Born: 1979

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

Art is not a birth given talent, and Kelly Ng Shah is a prime example of that. None of her family members were artistic let alone interested in the field. She would start with craft work such as knitting, rug making, and clay work at the age of five, spending hours and hours matching the colored yarns to create distinctive crafts. That combination of knits, colors, and eagerness to express her inner self drew her to sketching and painting. Her love for watercolors, oil, soft pastels, charcoal, and resin caused her to enroll herself in both public and private education to learn different techniques. Bold colors, multi-layering, shading, and the use of gold and silverleaf characterize Kelly’s paintings, which are best expressed via acrylics. A prominent and careful eye for colors stands out in every painting, reflecting her personality. Bolder choices of colors with sharp defined areas within the canvas highlight her numerous obstacles in life that she conquered through her creative outlet.

She has since been following the flow, letting the environment that surrounds her guide her hand. Periods of isolation and silence help her to recharge and redefine the hidden details in her paintings, often interjecting sessions for each piece. Her art is a series of ideas and cannot simply be completed with one give and go, leading her to revise each piece after sitting with them for a while. Kelly’s paintings aim to give a positive and colorful spin to any wall, creating a peaceful environment for the audience.

She has already given several pieces new lives with overjoyed owners, filling homes across the globe. She spreads her love to every corner possible, whether that be art showrooms and museums or office spaces and family homes. She paints to please, and there is always joy in the eyes of every customer who commissions her for a beautiful new visual addition in their lives!

Congrats Kelly on her recent win at UOB Painting of the year 2021 - Highly Commended Award under Emerging Artist award. Since then, she has been collaborating with UOB on mural and sustainability artwork.
