My Travel Sojourn The Impressions of a Travelling Artist
Singapore, 3 July 2014 – Pan Pacific Singapore collaborates with The Art Fellas (TAF) to present ‘My Travel Sojourn’ by guest artist Chan Chang How. From 9 July to 30 September 2014, travel the world through Chan’s rich and vibrant watercolours which reflect his journeys through Southeast Asia to the hinterlands of China, India and Nepal.
Chan graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1965 and witnessed firsthand the growth and development of Singapore. His works capture the vanishing trade and nostalgic lifestyle of Singapore as she developed from a sleepy fishing village to the bustling cosmopolitan city she is today. Known for his sketches of old Singapore, Chinatown and the Singapore River, Chan has an eye for unusual angles that influences the composition of his paintings. Chan’s mastery of watercolours is evident through the various awards he has received over the years and he is equally comfortable working with Chinese ink and oil.
An avid traveller, Chan’s watercolour techniques and unique compositions reflect stories of his journeys, and the vibrant people who have warmed his heart along the way. Visitors are welcome to experience this colourful exhibition and relive the stories that Chan tells through his artwork.
Representing Chan is The Art Fellas which was founded by shareholders Mr Cruz Phua and Mr Daniel Fong. More than just an art gallery, TAF aims to create a platform which engages and integrates artists, collectors and investors. They represent sixteen established and emerging artists from the Southeast Asian region.
