Going back in time: The history of UOB Painting of the Year

1983 UOB Painting of the Year - Singapore

Driven by a passion to encourage talented artists in their creative pursuits, United Overseas Bank (UOB) started the Painting of the Year competition in Singapore in 1982. Today, the annual art competition is the longest-running in Singapore and one of the most prestigious in Southeast Asia.

Held in four countries in the region - Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand - the UOB Painting of the Year competition has helped to discover many talented emerging artists and recognise several established professionals who have contributed significantly to the development of the Southeast Asian art scene.

Mr Goh Beng Kwan, one of Singapore’s masters of modern art, was the inaugural winner of the competition in 1982. Seven years later, Mr Goh received the prestigious Singapore Cultural Medallion and went on to make his mark in the world of abstract painting. His winning artwork in 1982, an evocative and lyrical collage titled The Dune, is now displayed at UOB Plaza One for the enjoyment of the Bank’s employees and customers.

Other well-known artists in the competition include Mr Anthony Poon, 1983 winner and one of Singapore’s pioneer abstract artists, 1991 winner Mr Chua Ek Kay, famed for his contemporary Chinese ink paintings, 2007 winner Ms Hong Sek Chern and 2014 winner Ms Om Mee Ai. Mr Poon and Mr Chua were conferred the Singapore Cultural Medallion in 1990 and 1999 respectively.

Across the region, the competition has also cultivated a strong alumni of artists. They include Ms Pannaphan Yodmanee from Thailand whose artworks on global warming are currently on exhibition at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, China; Mr Gan Tee Sheng from Malaysia who is well-known for artworks depicting human desires and the subconscious mind; and Mr Antonius Subiyanto from Indonesia, the winner of the 2014 UOB Southeast Asian Painting of the Year award who has gone on to exhibit in numerous cities in his country.

ย้อนเวลากลับไป...ประวัติของการประกวดจิตรกรรมยูโอบี

2016 UOB Painting of the Year Regional Winning Paintings’ Showcase

16 November 2016 – 1 February 2017
UOB Art Gallery, 80 Raffles Place
UOB Plaza 1, Ground Floor

In the 35th edition of the UOB Painting of the Year competition, UOB presented the 2016 UOB Southeast Asian Painting of the Year award to Indonesian artist, Mr Gatot Indrajati.

p_16_poy_059_104
Mr Gatot Indrajati

Right or Wrong My Home

The winning artwork, titled Right or Wrong My Home, was found by the regional judging panel to showcase an “innovative use of wood” resulting in a “visually compelling and contemporary art work” with wood carving – a traditional Indonesian art form – and paint. Infusing pop culture, current events and Indonesians’ wry sense of humour and resilience attitude, Right or Wrong My Home carried the representation of the passion and patriotism held by Indonesians of their beloved country.

All four regional winning pieces depict figurative renders of the common places and things; yet they are represented in a manner that invites the viewers to engage with the artists’ inner sentiments about their paintings’ subjects.

Mr Carey Ngai

Industry 2.0 III

Mr Carey Ngai, a UOB Painting of the Year alumni artist, won the 2016 UOB Painting of the Year award for his “realistic art piece” in the form of his oil on canvas painting titled Industry 2.0 III. The Singapore panel of judges was won over by the 49-year-old’s use of shades and colours in his winning piece, which carried the mood of nostalgia.

Established Category

Gold

Tang Kok Soo

Elephants Crossing the Water

In Mr Tang Kok Soo’s Elephants Crossing the Water, the Singapore team of judges found the work intriguing and inspiring. The artwork invites the viewer to look closer into not just the innate characteristics of elephants– resilience, loyalty to family, stamina and strong mental faculties; they are also prompted to consider the metaphoric symbolism of the herd of elephants – strength and wisdom.  Through the illustration of the stone’s perceived heaviness dissolving into lightness when stacked together – the artist’s positive message speaks of how when people come together to work towards a common goal or to solve a problem, these barriers or obstacles will be overcome.

Silver

Mr Yeo Tze Yang

Ah Ma’s Kitchen


Ah Ma’s Kitchen paints a familiar scene of a Singapore landscape – a common Housing Board Development kitchen which draws on the collective memories from the past and present. Mr Yeo Tze Yang’s paternal grandmother, whom he fondly calls Ah Ma in Hokkien (a local dialect), is not represented as the subject of the artwork, yet everything about the painting is of her. The painting pulls on the viewer’s senses and evokes a common, heartwarming response from the viewers of having visited or lived in such a familiar scene. Mr Yeo’s choice of distortions in his artwork, as opposed to merely rendering his artwork using clean, straight lines attests to the artist’s experience and perspective of space.

Bronze

Mr Kobayashi Satoshi

The Producer

Mr Kobayashi Satoshi’s inspiration for The Producer came about from his time living in Singapore. The Producer juxtaposes the primitive way of farming and nurturing crops in competition of the needs and demands from modern society.

The artwork is of an elaborate, graphic and decorative artwork, with its main uniqueness as a surface relief art piece. The depressions and elevations of the carving are deepened through the layers of colours used, showcasing a form of dynamism within the mixed media artwork.

Emerging Category

The winning artworks for the Singapore’s emerging category were interestingly very different in techniques, genre and medium yet, each artist was trying to convey a similar message: the exploration of relationships among people, space and objects.

Art Outreach

UOB and ION Art present: Create

From palette to palate – the best of art and food combine in UOB and ION Art’s Create collaboration

Presented by UOB and ION Art, Create showcases the harmony of visual art and culinary art, with new culinary creations inspired by artworks from the UOB Art Collection.

Create aims to take people on a sensorial journey of taste and sight. It draws on Singaporeans’ love for food to cultivate a deeper appreciation for art.

“In its various forms, art stimulates and inspires the beholder. Through Create, we hope to deepen the audience’s holistic appreciation of art by showcasing how it can be expressed in different ways, from painting and sculpting to baking and food presentation,” said Ms Lilian Chong, Senior Vice President, Group Strategic Communications and Customer Advocacy, UOB.

Charity elements are woven through the Create programme activities, in line with UOB’s focus on children, art and education.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

Create: Savour for Charity

Taste culinary creations inspired by the UOB Art Collection and UOB Painting of the Year winning artworks. The exclusive dishes are designed by renowned chefs from Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan and The Marmalade Pantry.

Pastry Chef Ryan Low from The Marmalade Pantry designed a cupcake inspired by Mr Aaron Gan’s award-winning watercolour Starry Starry Night, for which he won the Established Category Gold Award Singapore in the 2015 UOB Painting of the Year competition.

Mr Gan painted Starry Starry Night as a message of hope to remind viewers that stars shine their brightest during the darkest hours. The chocolate cupcakes created by Chef Ryan mirror this theme through their use of colour.

The cupcakes are available exclusively at The Marmalade Pantry at ION Orchard for a limited time only. The cupcakes retail at $4.90++ each, of which part of the sales proceeds will be donated to the Rainbow Centre and The Little Arts Academy.

From left to right: Aaron Gan’s Starry Starry Night won the Gold Award (Established Artist Category – Singapore) in UOB Painting of the Year 2015 and inspired the cupcakes created by The Marmalade Pantry.

At Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan, Executive Chef Mathew Leighton has given life to Ms Lee Jia Zhen’s 2014 Painting of the Year artwork Let’s Have A Burger, for which she won the Most Promising Artist of the Year Singapore award in the 2014 UOB Painting of the Year competition. Ms Lee’s artwork shows herself eating an imaginary burger as a form of escape while studying in school.

It inspired Chef Leighton to create a deconstructed burger with each ingredient symbolising different school subjects and the stressors facing students today.

The burger is available exclusively at Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan at ION Orchard for a limited time only. The burger retails at $32++, where a portion of the sales proceed will be donated to the Rainbow Centre and The Little Arts Academy.
