Lee Boon Wang 李文苑

Lee Boon Wang, a Singaporean artist, gained prominence as a landscape oil painter with a distinctive focus on riverside and seaside scenes. His passion for painting led him on extensive journeys across South East Asia, with Bali, Indonesia, being a frequent source of inspiration. In China, his favourite destination was the Province of Yunnan, where he felt the vibrant mood of the minority tribes. Through his artistic expressions, Lee beautifully conveyed his affection for humanity by capturing the essence of the lives of the people residing in these regions.

Following his graduation from the esteemed Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1953, Lee Boon Wang assumed the role of a lecturer at the same institution, contributing to its academic endeavors from 1955 to 1956. Subsequently, during the 1970s, he embraced a full-time career as a landscape painter, dedicating his talents and efforts to this artistic pursuit.Numerous works created by him found a place of significance in the esteemed collection of the National Gallery Singapore.

He was also one of the founding members of the Equator Art Society, which used realist art to address social issues. In 1980, Lee received the Singapore Creative Art Award and the Singapore Distinction Art Award in 1982. He was one of the artists whose art was selected to represent Singapore in Moscow in 1978. Through his participation in the 1st SIN-BRU Art Exhibition in Brunei, he became the first Singapore Artist Commissioned to paint the Royal Family.


李文旺于 1853 年在南洋艺术学院获得学位后,于 1955 年至 1956 年期间在那里讲学。他是赤道艺术协会的创始成员之一,该协会利用现实主义艺术来解决社会问题。 1989年,文莱苏丹及其家族购买了12幅李文旺的画作。除了当年举行最后一次个展外,李文旺也去世了。
