Fan Shao Hua was born in China in 1963, where he later trained at Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art. Fan arrived and settled in Singapore in 1992, imbibing local surroundings and people while drawing inspiration from his new environment. With his keen sense of observation, Fan clinched the 19th United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Award in 2000. One of the more original artists in Singapore, Fan is known to be highly exploratory in his practice as he fuses Chinese and Western painting techniques and concepts in his works.
In this retrospective exhibition, Fan will showcase over 60 works that chart his artistic journey from his days as an art student in China to his recent works. About 40 works will be Singapore-themed pieces ranging from old street scenes, changing landscapes of the nation to large-scale portraits of former Minister Mentor, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. As Fan presents his journey in art, he also pays tribute to Singapore in attributing his attainment of artistic maturity to our nation.
