  • Hailing from Kuching, the late Kueh Chai Phiaw was a dedicated classical Chinese ink artist equipped with arguably one of the most rigid Chinese ink art foundations in the local art scene. In 1962, Kueh studied fine arts at the Taiwan Normal University, where he was directly taught under important art masters including Huang Junbi, Lin Yushan, Pu Xinyu, Liao Jichun and Ma Baishui. As such, his artworks inherited the masters’ style and demeanour underpinned by profound traditional drawing fundamentals and compositions.

     

    Upon returning to Malaysia, he committed himself to both artistic creation and art education. In 2008, he was recognised as “The First-Generation Artists in Sarawak” by the state government. In 2015, his solo Chinese ink exhibition was held at Younie Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. In 2017, an exhibition in memory of him was held at Boonia Art Gallery, Kuching.

     

    郭才标不只是一位不折不扣的传统水墨画家,亦是本土传统水墨画基础深厚中的佼佼者。他在1962年负笈台湾,在台湾师范大学修学纯美艺术系。当时就有国宝级的台湾艺术大师,黄君璧、林玉山、溥心畬、廖继春及马白水等亲自授课。于是在他的作品中,传承了这些大家的艺术思想与风范,拥有着深沉的传统绘画基础与格式。中国水墨艺术基石经历了几千年的揉炼,绘画艺术最终讲究的还是技术与精神相容一体的功力、修养与意境,即是脱离不了空灵流畅、怀古姿拙,自然大气的元素。而郭才标的艺术创作,皆盈溢充沛着这些艺术的大符号。大气的表现与儒儒君子的风姿,一时无人可比!

     

    回国后,他就一直从事艺术绘画钻研与发扬的工作,于多所中学教导美术。退休后,郭才标设立画室,坚持不懈地培养绘画人才。2008年,郭才标获得被砂州政府选为 “砂拉越第一代艺术家” 的荣誉。2015年,他的个人水墨画展“回归传统”于吉隆坡颜丽轩画廊举办。2017年,一场纪念郭才标的“思念如许长” - 郭才标门生书画作品展于古晋文雅轩举行。
