The Story of Yeh Chi Wei


Yeh Chi Wei (1913-1981) was a Singaporean artist, educator and leader in Singapore's twentieth-century art scene whose story has never been told. The Story of Yeh Chi Wei, an exhibition organised by The National Art Gallery, Singapore, sheds light on his artistic achievements and pivotal role in Singapore art history as a dedicated art teacher and leader of the Ten Men Group and other associations.

The essays in volume one examine his contributions and the influence of diverse cultural and historical resources in his paintings. There are also biographical portraits by family and former students.
