This book was published in conjunction with an exhibition that featured over 30 exhibits in different media by Wong Keen. Wong Keen (b. 1942, Singapore) grew up in a Chinese literati environment and was a highly acclaimed teenage painter in the early Singapore art scene. His departure for the Art Students League of New York in 1961 marked him as the first Singaporean to venture into the flourishing post-war American art scene. Wong Keen's unique body of work, which encompasses oil, ink, acrylic and collage since the 1960s to the present, is a powerful embodiment of the elegant expressivity of Chinese ink wash aesthetics and Abstract Expressionism.
