Koeh Sia Yong 许锡勇

Koeh Sia Yong (b. 1938) is a key artist in Singapore representing the second generation Singapore Art. He is one of the most important Nanyang Style Oil Painting Artists in Singapore. After completing his studies at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art, Koh has dedicated more than five decades to his artistic pursuits. Renowned for his distinctive and exceptional painting style, he has emerged as one of Singapore’s most exceptional and sought-after artists, celebrated for his remarkable skills and creativity.

Among his figure paintings, many pieces eloquently capture the indigenous conditions and customs of Bali Island, Indonesia. The women of Bali come to life through Koeh’s skillful brushwork, portraying their graceful movements, traditional costumes, and intricate hair decorations with rich and intensive colors. These artworks beautifully depict the scenes of Bali ladies singing and dancing, providing viewers with a touching glimpse into their world.

In Koeh’s landscape paintings, he often portrays scenes of the Singapore River, old streets, temples, and volcanoes, among others. Through his brush, these natural and urban landscapes come alive, conveying a sense of place and atmosphere to the audience.

Koeh’s artistic creations have the remarkable ability to immerse viewers in the vibrant cultural scenes of Southeast Asia. They capture the essence of the region’s people, the warmth of sunny weather, the vastness of the blue sky, and the lushness of the tropical forests. Even now, Koeh continues to pursue his unique individual style, driven by his passion for life and nature, allowing his art to evolve and inspire.
