Tze Yang Yeo
Yeo Tze Yang (born 1994, Singapore) is a painter of everyday life. His paintings often depict the unnoticed and bypassed places and objects of his immediate surroundings. A self taught painter, his technique is raw and immediate.
Avoiding contemporary conceptual approaches to art, he instead reverts back to a more direct and emotive artistic direction. He believes in the unity of life and art, and envisions his works to speak for themselves to viewers of any background. The result of such a process is an accumulation of images, thoughts, emotions, stories and memories, that in turn become allegories of the artist’s life.
Tze Yang was awarded the UOB Painting of the Year Silver Prize in 2016. He was part of the Art Elective Program from secondary school to junior college for six years. Ever since leaving National Junior College in 2012, he has continued to paint, and has exhibited widely in venues such as Shophouse 5, Goodman Arts Centre, Institute of Contemporary Art, Art Apart Fair and the Affordable Art Fair in Singapore. He has been recognized as one of “15 Singaporeans Aged 25 And Under To Watch In 2015” by mustsharenews.com. He lives and works in Singapore. His works are part of private collections in Singapore, Australia, the UK and the USA. His first solo exhibition, A Place Behind My Eyes, was held at ION Art by Utterly Art. He is currently pursuing his bachelors degree in Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore.
