Time Out says
Clear Light marks Australian artist Ian de Souza's debut showcase in Singapore after more than four decades of practicing art. The Malaya-born artist spent his early years in Singapore and Malaysia under colonial British and Japanese rule before moving to New South Wales at the age of 16. He then toured the world as a musician, performing alongside pop icons such as the Bee Gees before becoming a full-time artist in 1980. In this homecoming exhibition at The Private Museum, de Souza showcases his latest series of paintings which explore his contemplations on life, and a revisit of his Eastern heritage, spirituality, and harmony.
