MAVEN x Chng Seok Tin
Chng Seok Tin was born in 1946 in Singapore. Her interest in art began in Chung Cheng High School, first as a theatrical make-up artist for the school’s Drama Society and then as a member of the Art Society. This was for her a “wonderful time” because she was able to take part in exhibitions at the Victoria Memorial Hall.

When she graduated, she studied Western art under a distinguished art master Yeo Hwee Bin, learning still life, watercolour, oil painting, sculpture, and going on excursions to practise landscape painting and learn from nature. Chng Seok Tin is one of Singapore’s most versatile and engaging multidisciplinary artists. She educated in Singapore, UK, France and USA, as the artist and published writer she has held 26 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 100 group exhibitions since the ’70s. Featuring printmaking, drawing, painting, collage, photography, installation, and largely mixed media and sculpture following her visual impairment in 1988, Chng's art practice is distinguished by her unflagging spirit and social engagement, her works speaking powerfully of the human condition. She was named Woman of the Year 2001 by Her World magazine. In 2005, she received the Cultural Medallion for her contributions to visual arts in Singapore.
