Description

Over five decades, leading Singapore ink artist Zhuang Shengtao’s artistic pursuits have led him to France, the United States, and subsequently Suzhou, China––the birthplace of classical ink art. This dialogue with Senior Curator Cai Heng maps Zhuang’s practice within the context of China’s 5000-year cultural history and multicultural Singapore.

Note: This talk will be conducted in Mandarin with simultaneous translation in English.

About the artist

Zhuang Shengtao (born in Chaozhou, China), moved to Singapore in 1955 where he enrolled in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Zhuang also studied Chinese painting and calligraphy under the tutelage of renowned Singaporean calligrapher, See Hiang To. Being exposed to many years of education in the Chinese classics gave him a steadfast grounding in Chinese literature, brushwork and the philosophy of Taoism. Zhuang’s years of study in Europe and the United States, along with his extensive travels, broadened his perspectives and inspired him to seek new ways to contemporise traditional Chinese calligraphy and ink painting.

Zhuang has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Singapore and other countries, including ‘Journey of Ink’, (1993, Singapore National Museum Art Gallery), ‘Power and Poetry – Monuments and Meditations in Chinese Contemporary Ink Paintings’ (1998, Singapore Art Museum), ‘5th International Ink Painting Biennial of Shenzhen’ (1999, Shenzhen, China) BenSe Art Museum, (2009, Suzhou, China) and ‘The Ink Art of Zhuang Shengtao’ (2017, iPreciation Gallery, Singapore).
