“A great painting will have to touch the heart of the artist before it can touch others.” – Tan Choh Tee

\r\n

Local prominent impressionist artist, Mr Tan Choh Tee has painted professionally for more than four decades. He went under tutelage of the pioneer artists of Singapore including Liu Kang, Chen Wen Hsi and Cheong Soo Pieng.
His art work fuses the best of both Western and Oriental arts to create a personal style consistent in quality, singularity of purpose and freshness of impression.

\r\n

Believing that art must flow from the artist’s personal experience, and the basis of the art should come from the visual phenomenon the artist had experienced, Mr Tan is persistent in painting on location.This exhibition will showcase eight of Mr Tan’s finest masterpieces from his private collection.
