Blue Awning at Joo Chiat , 2015
Oil on Canvas
120 x 120cm
Adopting askew lines and unique angles, the instinctive and playful distortions of architectural elements in the artist's cityscapes and street scenes exhibit a distinctive and contemporary flavour. In this painting of one of the many shophouses in Joo Chiat, the essence of the culturally-rich area is captured on paper with the artist's use of vibrant colours. By injecting such an unconventional twist into what is supposedly one of the most traditional and timeless mediums in the Western art world, Zhu Hong paints like no other, and his works inspire us to observe familiar scenes and objects with fresh eyes.
