Commemorating Liu Kang – A Collection of his Paintings and Calligraphy

This exhibition is organised by Asia Art Collective and Dynasties Antique and Art Gallery to commemorate and celebrate the 111th year of the birth of Liu Kang, Singapore’s most respected and important pioneer artist.

From 4 to 15 June 2022, visit this exhibition: Commemorating Liu Kang – An Exhibition of his Paintings and Calligraphy and be amazed by his Chinese ink painting and calligraphy works. Admire the ink painting and calligraphy masterpieces by the esteemed first-generational pioneer artist who is known for his contributions in the development of the Nanyang style.

Liu Kang is recognised as one of Singapore’s most influential pioneering first-generation artists. He is best known for his contributions to the Nanyang painting style, which he developed together with his contemporaries – Chen Wen Hsi, Cheong Soo Pieng and Chen Chong Swee after a field trip to Bali in 1952. Many arts scholars have identified the Bali trip as a milestone event contributing to the birth of the Nanyang art style, marking an important juncture in Singapore’s art history. 

Liu Kang had also greatly contributed to the development of art in Singapore. He was a leading figure in the Society of Chinese Artist and the Singapore Art Society, and received the Public Service Star award in 1970, and the Meritorious Service medal in 1996.
