Elements of Chinese Calligraphy: A Solo Exhibition by Tan Oe Pang
20 July @ 11:00 am - 29 August @ 6:30 pm
Three years after his last Chinese calligraphy solo show in 2015, Tan Oe Pang returns with an extensive three-part exhibition series, featuring ninety-one pieces of his calligraphy works written over the years. The calligraphy of Tan Oe Pang emphasises on essential basic skills such as the handling of brush and mastering variations of strokes, spending twenty years to hone his foundation skills of writing proper Chinese characters. Not limited to Chinese characters, Tan also writes phrases in different ethnic languages, including Malay, Tamil, Chinese dialects in Singapore and more, demonstrating that the brushstrokes of Chinese calligraphy are not only restricted to writing Chinese characters.
