Tang Juey Lee 陈锐利
Tang Juey Lee 陈锐利, born in 1954, studied at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in 1974. Pioneer artist See Hiang To 施香沱, his teacher at NAFA, was his mentor. Tang assimilated the fine brushwork in Chinese ink paintings with vibrant watercolour, thus creating his unique watercolour on Chinese rice paper works.
Known as the painter of orchids, he has painted hundreds of paintings of orchids, Singapore's national flower. He often pairs his orchids with birds, from parrots to sparrows to geese, a continuation of his East and West blend, where the flower-bird genre often seen in Chinese paintings is combined with Western realism.
His works have been collected by many private and public organisations in Singapore and Malaysia, including the National Museum of Singapore and Changi Airport.
In this exhibition specially curated for PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, we are once again reminded of the beauty of the late Tang Juey Lee's immaculate paintings of birds and blooms, full of grace and exquisiteness. Paintings that charms and captivates us effortlessly.
"Tang Juey Lee - Birds and Blooms 陈锐利 - 鸟语花香" art exhibition runs from 15April to 15July 2023 at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay hotel level 5.
