Cultural Medallion winner Tan Swie Hian knows a thing or two about the free mind – there’s a reason TIME magazine dubbed him ‘Singapore’s Renaissance Man’ in 2003. Examine the multidisciplinary artist’s works in his second exhibition at the National Library, each piece marked by freedom in medium, subject matter, genre and expression. Tan’s signature style of inscribing text in the background of each of his words is not without meaning, either: a portrait of the late Charlie Chaplin combines graffiti and Chinese ink painting, an aesthetic unique to himself.
