History of "Elite Painters"
"Elite Painters", inaugurated in year 2000, is organised by Eagle's Eye Art Gallery and Eagle's Dream, two well established art galleries in Singapore. The galleries have developed this exhibition into a prestigious annual affair for art lovers to view the latest works by Asia's crème de la crème of art. As the title suggests, only the "elite" artists - artists with reputable background - will be selected to participate in this exhibition.
The objective of this exhibition is to create awareness and appreciation for high calibre artists in Singapore, and in the long run to become a benchmark for up and coming artists to strive to participate as one of the elite painters. "Elite Painters" will include the finest from all over Asia.
Tea with Michael
By popular demand, Eagle’s Eye Art Gallery is organizing a tea session with one of the most promising painter in South-east Asia. The paintings on display are put together to form a compelling story of the kampong life. The story seeks to capture the simple and natural values that are eroded in urban living.
Art collectors are captivated by Michael’s paintings which are richly detailed and gloriously coloured, with most of the themes set in the realm of rusticity. He scrutinizes his subjects with the eye of a microbiologist, then gives a glittering brocade-like quality to the minutiae of kampong life.
Drawn with cheerful spontaneity that parallels the happy cheer of kampong folks, Michael’s paintings speak of family and tradition, warmth and vibrancy, harmony and contentment.
Ms Joy Loh, Art Director of Eagle’s Eye Art Gallery and the Exhibition Curator, commented, “Michael Tan is our most promising Elite Painter. Art buyers have shown discerning taste, recognizing the quality of works offered at our gallery. The market is continuing to show a strong interest in Michael’s paintings. This artist will be a phenomenal success.”
