The five-time award winner at the annual UOB Painting of the Year competition – he’s best known for his use bold brush strokes – evokes nostalgia in his latest series of contemporary Chinese ink paintings, which highlight distinct features found in old shophouses, such as the oft-photographed Peranakan wall tiles.
