About This Book

The Art of Chua Mia Tee: A Portrait of a Life's Work is the first significant monograph on the artist Chua Mia Tee, marking his conferment of the Cultural Medallion in 2015. This ambitious undertaking brings together for the first time in a single volume, more than 300 works of art that have anchored Chua's reputation as one of Asia's foremost Realist artists. Special features in this book include over 30 of Chua's Parliamentary sketches of1978-79, and portraits of almost every single Singapore President sworn-to-office and nearly every Chief Justice appointed. Chua's stellar list of luminaries in Singapore throws light on the breadth and scope of his commissioned works. This publication also traces how his depictions of the working-class and "vanishing scenes" of a rapidly changing city have captured the hearts and imagination of the larger community. With essays and contributions from prominent writers and museum curators, this monograph illuminates the life, thought and work of one of Singapore's most influential artists. This definitive artist monograph, spanning almost seven decades of Chua's practice since the 1950s, is an invaluable resource and addition to the canon of works in Singapore art research and development.
