Detailed Information

“Michael Tan paints Kampung life like you’ve never seen it before.”

Artist Michael Tan is truly the quintessential self-taught artist. Without the opportunity to go to art school, Michael experimented extensively in his art and makes it on sheer grit and talent.

A quirky give-away to a Michael Tan painting – apart from the signature of course – is the cat. Michael always puts in a cat not just because he likes them but because he feels that cats identify so well with the folkish genre of his paintings. And in a manner as deft and surreptitious as his cats, Michael has pussy-footed his way into the Singapore art scene.

Michael’s works are richly-detailed and gloriously coloured, with most of the themes set in the realm of rusticity. The buyers are discerning collectors who, unbothered by the relative obscurity of the artist, pay top dollars for the fastidiously executed paintings. Michael, who is in his early 50s, scrutinizes his subjects with the eye of a microbiologist, then gives a glittering brocade-like quality to the minutiae of kampung life – an explanation for his lack of prolificacy.

However, Michael’s fondness for stylised human figures; “still” formal composition; flat colors and abstract; sharply receding perspectives and a certain unsettling mood to his paintings, betray traces of his artistic roots. Michael’s works depict the culture and spirit of the Southeast Asia kampung, which continues to enthrall him with its earthiness simplicity and harmony.

陈 玉才

陈玉才 所描绘的甘榜生活,让你眼前一亮。画家未曾进入过艺术学院学习,凭着个人的毅力、爱好,以及天份,他自学成功。他的绘画特色——除了他的签名——就是猫。撇开个人对猫的钟爱,画家认为猫让他另成一派,并且凸显独有的民族传统情感。

画家的作品大多数以朴素的乡村生活为主题,色调别致,内容丰富。艺术收藏家对他的一丝不苟作风神往不已,甚至愿意以高价收购他的作品。

50年代初,画家已经对甘榜生活的细枝末节观察入微,使得他日后在画画时,把甘榜朴素的生活,以平实的色彩、细腻的笔触、略微抽象的画风,在他的画中表现出来,也形成了他的独特风格和流派。

陈玉才描绘的是东南亚的甘榜,却以质朴简约的作风,表达民族的和谐精神。
