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

Waves by Anthony Poon,
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.

Waves โดย Anthony Poon,

UOB Art Gallery, 80 Raffles Place
UOB Plaza 1, Ground Floor

We are proud to announce the 2018 UOB Painting of the Year Singapore winners.
Drawing influence from heritage, traditions, values and environment, these winning paintings are distinguished by their compelling stories and the strong emotions that they evoke.

At UOB, we recognise the important role of art in strengthening the fabric of a society. It connects people and communities, celebrates cultures and enriches lives. Across the region, the 37-year-old art competition has helped to uncover a new generation of Southeast Asian artists.

EST_Suvi-Wahyudianto_ANGST
Suvi Wahyudianto
Angs’t (ANGST)

Angs’t (ANGST) narrates a personal experience and collective social memory towards conflicts, focusing on the important role of empathy. To the artist, despite our racial and cultural differences, we are essentially the same. This artwork thus evokes our sense of empathy towards the lives of innocents in the face of conflict and symbolises the hope that someday, the thick wall that separates us from seeing and treating each other as equal human beings will come down.

Mr Wahyudianto graduated from the Surabaya State University in 2017. His artworks are inspired by everyday life, past memories, and his interest in history. His passion for literature and theatre also helps him transform ideas into more contemplative artworks, with his experimental use of various techniques and mediums in his artistic process.

ES-POY_Rite-of-Passage_edit_CMYK
Khairulddin Bin Abdul Wahab
Rite of Passage

Rite of Passage is derived from an image of an oil bath ritual that is practised in Silat
Gayong, a style of martial arts. Practitioners would plunge their hands in boiling oil and rub it over their exposed bodies, a physical, mental and spiritual test of one’s ability to harness unseen or ‘mystical’ forces to withstand pain.

The concept of an unseen world where forces of good and evil can influence and impact physical existence is a belief found in various spiritual teachings. Rite of Passage represents this world where hidden forces come together with the physical domain through a ceremony that opens a passage where one can only pass through self-surrender.

Mr Khairulddin has participated in various local and international group exhibitions since 2010. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2014 where he also won the Winston Oh Travel Research Art Award.

Cheong Kiet Cheng
Through the Eye of the Flower

Through the Eye of the Flower is an intricate collage of ink on canvas.

Here, the artist uses a myriad of symbols inspired by nature to convey a sense of optimism in her work. Images of her two young daughters take centre stage to convey feelings of hope and the promise of a better future. On the periphery sits a crocodile, symbolising negativity, while the images of the sun and the curved whale represent the golden crescent moon and the star of the Malaysian flag.

Through these symbolic representations, the artist wants to convey the message that hope is central and all negativities should be peripheral in today’s society.

Ms Cheong obtained her Diploma in Fine Art from the Dasein Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2006. She has since held three solo exhibitions and most recently exhibited her works at Art Jakarta 2018 in Indonesia. She was a finalist in the Malaysian Young Contemporary Artist Competition in 2013 and was awarded the Creative M50 Award in Shanghai, China in 2016.

ES-POY_Persistent-Problems
Apiwat Banler
Persistent Problems

Persistent Problems features a network of highways, trains and cars, tightly bound together in a knot as they intersect and overlap with one another.

Here, the pace and energy of an urban city is captured through the artist’s composition of linear roads congregating in a central focal point of gridlock. Through the painting, the artist conveys the impact of being surrounded by chaos in everyday life through persistent problems such as Bangkok’s traffic congestion, urban sprawl and mass transit system outages.

Mr Banler is an independent artist and bar owner in Bangkok, Thailand where his bar is also an art gallery. He has held solo exhibitions in Bangkok in 2015 and 2017, and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Fine Arts at the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Thailand.


2018 Most Promising Artist of the Year, Singapore

EM-MPA_Encapsulated-Time_CMYK
Hu Jingxuan
Encapsulated Time

Encapsulated Time features a constructed interior made up of fragments of architectural and historical elements inspired by the artist’s own nomadic experience.

In modern society, people are constantly moving and travelling, resulting in hybrid identities, blurred cultural borders and confusing social contexts. How does one negotiate the perplexing realities of contemporary life and identity in an ever changing landscape?

Using art as a visual journal, the artist examines these ideas of modern life and migration in Encapsulated Time, capturing lost memories in a manufactured setting by re-imagining the gaps rather than recording them as they were supposed to be.

Ms Hu graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA in 2012, and obtained her Master of Arts degree from Central Saint Martins in London, UK in 2014. She uses her art to examine ideas around flux, history, heritage and urban life, with aesthetic codes as markers of identity and aspirations.


2018 Most Promising Artist of the Year, Indonesia

EMR_Seno-Wahyu-Sampurno_Introspeksi-Diri
Seno Wahyu Sampurno
Introspeksi Diri (Self Introspection)

Introspeksi Diri (Self Introspection) is a collage made up of 288 bridge card-sized panels capturing various individual problems and memories over a period of time.

To the artist, there will always be meaningful moments in life, where each captured moment can become an opportunity for self-reflection to measure one’s capacity to achieve identified life goals. Hence, the collection of these moments represents a journey of contemplation which sometimes arises out of fear and trauma. Yet, at the same time, it is also a life process to remind us to be better human beings, for “the higher we are placed, the more humbly we should walk” (seperti ilmu padi, kian berisi kian merunduk).

Mr Sampurno is a student at the Indonesian Institute of the Arts Yogyakarta, Indonesia. His artworks often depict emotions that reflect life stages, such as the trauma of death or the calm of self-reflection. He also frequently explores various genres in his artistic style.

01_Emerging-Artist-Category_Most-Promising
Koh Kai Ting
The Double Portrait

In The Double Portrait, the artist depicts a goat as her main subject to visually make a play on the word ‘scapegoat’. Here, the artist focuses on creating a visual narrative to explore the intersection between socio-political pressures and the pursuit of individual happiness.

Using watercolour on polyester mesh fabric, the artist created a painting that draws attention to the struggle of those who are bullied and pressured to conform to societal norms at the expense of individual happiness. The message is conveyed through the image of a goat pierced by thorns to show the magnitude of suffering experienced at the hands of a bully, who often uses his or her victims as scapegoats to deflect their own inherent unhappiness.

Ms Koh graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore with a Diploma in Fine Art. She has participated in group exhibitions in Singapore as well as in the Pulau Ketam International Art Festival in 2016.


2018 Most Promising Artist of the Year, Thailand

04-EM-MPA_Rhythm-of-Transformation-No-4
Chaichana Luetrakun
Rhythm of Transformation No. 4

In Rhythm of Transformation No. 4, the artist looks into the lifespan of an automobile in his depiction of a scrap yard filled with derelict metal. New vehicles that start out shiny and fresh get worn down and battered over time, ending up in the same crowded space with used cars of similar fate.

Here, the landscape of junk cars represents the change of humans through time. In the artist’s eyes, he views society as consisting of people with different backgrounds, experiences and memories. He reinterprets the human form through the asymmetrical arrangement of cars to symbolise how humans grow up and become different elements driving a society.

Mr Luetrakun is from Northeast Thailand. He has participated in group exhibitions in Los Angeles, USA in 2018 and is currently studying Fine Arts at the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Thailand.

Visit the UOB Art Gallery to view the best of the Singapore and regional award-winning artworks from the 2018 UOB Painting of the Year. The exhibition showcase will end on 28 February 2019.
