Artist Biography

Loke Gee Chian's artistic journey began when he completed his studies at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore back in 1968. Specializing in both oil and watercolours, Loke embarked on his path as a full-time artist, although he also took on the role of an art instructor at PJ College of Art & Design from 1984 to 1992. Currently, he actively serves as a committee member of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Alumni Association in Malaysia, where his contributions play a pivotal role in organizing and planning various art events and activities.

Right after he graduated from NAFA, Loke made his mark at the "Nine Young Artists Group Exhibition of Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts" in 1969 and continued to be a regular participant in NAFA alumni exhibitions from 1971 to 1982. His journey through the art world includes participation in selected group shows such as the Malaysian Watercolour Society's annual exhibitions (1983 – 1987); the "Asian Watercolour Confederation Show", Kuala Lumpur (1988); "East Coast Impression", City Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur (2011); "Back to Basic", Younie Gallery, Kuala Lumpur (2013 & 2014); "Artists Art Fair Malaysia 2014: Golden Brush", Stadium Chinwoo, Kuala Lumpur (2014); and "Journey Through Time - The 80th Anniversary of NAFA", Atelier 11 Gallery, Selangor (2018).

In 2013, his solo exhibition, "The World of Double Medium by Loke Gee Chian," was held at Younie Gallery, where he showcased oil and watercolour works of figures and landscapes. Loke's artistic reach extends beyond borders, as he has also participated in international exhibitions such as the "Asian Watercolour Confederation Show" in Bangkok, Thailand in 1989 and the "Hainan - Malaysia Oil Painting Exchange Exhibition" at Hainan Museum, China in 2015.
