332 pages
INKPULSE: The Art of Yeo Shih Yun chronicles the course of Yeo Shih Yun's 18 years long artistic journey, from the early 2000s when she first fell in love with ink and decided to pursue her dream to today having founded an independent art space that speaks volumes of the exceptional creative collaborations she has been a part of over the years and established an impressive oeuvre of works that ranges from pure abstraction to unconventional experimentation. With an ink-based, East-meets-West aesthetic - influenced by the tutelage of the eminent painter Chua Ek Kay - this monograph conceptualises the artist's pulsating pursuit for new depths and new perspectives within and beyond the realm of Abstract Expressionism.

Conversations with chance and a spontaneous search for poetic sentiments and dramatic unknowns are important features of Yeo Shih Yun's art-making process. "It is all about the marks," she says, "What I ultimately seek is the imperfection that comes with an unconstrained and intuitive technique".

This publication is a progressive catalogue of art she has done over the years, interspersed with accounts by the people she has met along the way - inspiring industry professionals like Marjorie Chu and Kay Liu, visionary collectors like Koh Seow Chuan, established curators like Iola Lenzi and Louis Ho as well as friends and fellow artists. It is only through reading their essays does the chaos fall into order, with the randomness of collective memories offering new, multi-layered dimensions to Yeo Shih Yun’s art—the closing of one chapter and delving into the next.

Artist Profile

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.
