Biography of Artist, Yeo Shih Yun
Yeo Shih Yun
Shih Yun's fascination for the
abstract medium surfaced during her time at Lasalle, when she
first experimented with the fusion of fine arts and contemporary
design. One of her early experimental works received acclaim as
a highly commended entry for the UOB Painting of the Year
competition in 1999. This spurred her to further explore the fine
arts and the abstract form. After graduating from Lasalle, Shih
Yun attended the one-year Post Baccalaureate Program (Painting)
at the San Francisco Art Institute.
Shih Yun has collaborated with
artists from America and UK for the past three years and has
held numerous exhibitions in Singapore and Australia. Some of
her recent exhibitions include “exit” in Melbourne, Australia
and “NewFinds 2003" at MITA ARTrium. In addition, she was
awarded the Emerging Artist Grant from the National Arts Council
to hold her first solo exhibition titled, “log:one03” at Block
43 Studio Gallery in 2003.
