YEO Shih Yun (1976, Singapore) graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1998 with a Bachelor degree in Business Administration. She then joined LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts and completed a Diploma in Communication Design in 2001, prior to her pursuit of the Post Baccalaureate Programme in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002.
Professionally, Yeo is known to reinterpret the very act of ink painting with striking results. Her experimentations with the fusion of the traditional form and contemporary mediums, such as new media or performance art, have garnered much acclaim, including a commission by the Singapore Art Museum and the recognition of the Sovereign Asian Art Prize People's Choice Award in 2012 as well as the UOB Painting of the Year Competition in 2007. Additionally, Yeo has held solo exhibitions in Singapore, Japan, and Germany, along with other group exhibitions on the international scene.
In 2017, her first book, INKPULSE: the art of Yeo Shih Yun, was published. The volume conceptualises Yeo's pulsating pursuit for new depths and new perspectives within and beyond the realm of Abstract Expressionism.
YEO is also the Founder of the independent art space “INSTINC” in Singapore, where she currently lives and works.
