Artist: Ngiam Kiah Seng, (b.1950, Singapore)
Title: Splendour of Rainforests
Size (cm): 123.5 X 93.5 cm
Mr Ngiam uses a yin-yang stroke technique to create the luxuriance and complexity of the rainforests and the effect of sunlight shining through the leaves.
To the artist, these majestic trees represent the success Singapore has achieved in education and as a financial centre. The seeds planted by the older generations have grown strongly over the years and developed into a sturdy rainforest that now provides shade and protection for generations to come.
