About the artwork

The painted nude figure is a tradition in Western art, which Ling Yang Chang adapts into his own style by combining Western aesthetics with traditional Chinese techniques. His composition is rather minimal, painting merely the outline of the figure and key features. This minimalistic approach puts focus on what is painted, letting the white space highlight the features that are there.



About the artist

Born in Singapore, Ling Yang Chang has been involved in many aspects of art-making over the last twenty years: artistic creations, group and solo exhibitions, workshops, public lectures and art teaching. As a graduate in Chinese Studies, Yang Chang has a natural affinity for Chinese brush painting with its close attention to the beauty of lines, poetic resonance and philosophical depth. In this medium, Yang Chang constitutes a complete artist in the Chinese scholarly tradition; not only does he carve his own seals, he also appends his artistic creations with his own calligraphical writings. The steely discipline required to establish a solid brush and ink control technique has built a strong foundation for Yang Chang's exploration of other artistic fields - namely, Contemporary Chinese Art and Modern and Abstract Painting. Yang Chang's works have obtained prizes in the Philippe Charriol Competition (1995/96), UOB Painting of the Year Award (1996), and First Prize (Chinese Ink Painting) in the Dr Tan Tsze Chor Art Award (2011). Collected by the National Heritage Board and National Library Board of Singapore, he has exhibited in China, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, Melbourne and Singapore. A Walk in the City is his sixth solo exhibition.
