Chua Ek Kay 蔡逸溪

Chua Ek Kay was an artist recognized for bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art. In 1991, he became the first Chinese-ink painter to be awarded the United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Award. Chua studied under Singaporean great brush painter Fan Chang Tien of the Shanghai School, but developed a strong interest in Western art later in life. Chua’s paintings are notable for their blend of traditional Chinese art styles and Western art techniques. In 1999, he received the Cultural Medallion.


Chua’s daily life and art were heavily influenced by Chinese culture. He composed Chinese poetry, read Chinese literature, and honed his calligraphy skills, which he learned from his father. Chua’s enthusiasm in calligraphy lasted all the way until Catholic High School. He turned his own poems into calligraphic characters, combining his love of classical Chinese poetry with calligraphy. Chua had already established himself in the calligraphy and poetry circles by 1975, the year he began learning Chinese brush painting and seal carving from Fan Chang Tien, the Shanghai School’s premier brush painter. According to Shanghai School principles, perfection consists of four elements: calligraphy, classical poetry, drawing, and seal carving, which Chua aspired to in his artistic work.
