AC43 Gallery is pleased to present the debut feature of oil paintings by young Singapore artist, Dominic Thian.
This presentation will showcase the artist's specialisation in still life, portrait and landscape paintings. Dominic's paintings are centrally motivated by the pursuit of a genuine artistic reaction to the beauty surrounding him and that which is also found within. Combining classic figurative techniques with a modern sensibility, he creates intricate depictions of scenes and objects that move the viewer.
About the Artist
Born and raised close to the East Coast of Singapore, Dominic often draws inspiration from the unique picturesqueness of Singapore's reclaimed coasts and neighbourhoods. In 2018, after majoring for a year in Architecture at the National University of Singapore (NUS), Dominic decided to follow his passion for painting and make the bold decision to cease his studies at the university. He subsequently travelled to the United States to enrol at the renowned American art institution Grand Central Atelier (GCA), New York. There he underwent an intensive curriculum of drawing and painting the figure under internationally-acclaimed artist Colleen Barry and other distinguished contemporary artists in New York, before returning to Singapore to anchor himself at the forefront of Singapore's figure drawing scene.
