Artist Biography

Hwang Fwee Yuh, a third-generation Singaporean artist, was born in China and arrived in Malaya at the age of 8. She specializes in Chinese ink painting. Graduating from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in 1971, she initially pursued oil painting but soon found herself drawn to the expressive potential of the Chinese brush. She learned Chinese ink painting from renowned Singaporean artist Mr. Lim Kay Hiong and calligraphy from Prof. Tan Siah Kwee. Hwang Fwee Yuh is a member of the Chinese Calligraphy Society of Singapore, NAFA Alumni Association, and the Society of Chinese Artists Singapore. In 2009, the latter organized an exhibition for her at the Singapore Calligraphy Centre, officiated by former NAFA principal Mr. Lim Yew Kuan.
