Chin Chun Wah's deft strokes of marker lines and watercolour captures the vibrant colours of the Thian Hock Keng Temple. Gazetted as a national monument in 1973, this temple is one of the oldest and most important Hokkien temples in Singapore. Built in 1839, under the leadership of Mr Tan Tock Seng and Mr Si Hoo Keh together with the Hokkien clan, it was visited by Chinese immigrants giving thanks to Ma Zu (Goddess of the Sea) for their safe voyage.
- +Artist Bio
Chin Chun Wah was a founding member of the Singapore Watercolour Society in 1969 and a budding artist that lead several art groups here in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was known for his sketches in pen and wash - a painting technique using marker pens and watercolours to depict scenes with light, deft strokes rendered within minutes. After graduating, he worked briefly at the former Radio and Television, Singapore, the Culture Ministry, as well as the Housing and Development Board as an artist and designer. He gave up painting when he joined developer Far East Organization as its advertising manager in 1977. He won first prize in the Parks and Recreation's logo design competition and a year earlier in 1976, attained the third prize in an art competition organized by OCBC Bank in conjunction with the completion of its skyscraper in Chulia Street. He retired from Far East in 1999 and became an avid golfer. Read More
