Three years after his last Chinese calligraphy solo show in 2015, Singaporean artist Tan Oe Pang returns with an extensive three-part exhibition series, featuring ninety-one pieces of his calligraphy works written over the years. Besides writing his self-composed poems and couplets in Chinese language, Tan Oe Pang also uses the unparalleled brushstroke techniques of Chinese calligraphy to write phrases in multiple languages of other ethnic groups. They include phrases written in Malay, Tamil, Japanese, Korean as well as the Chinese dialects in Singapore – a highlight of this exhibition series. The ingenious interethnic and cross-cultural exchange is not only meaningful, but it also brings out a new visual aesthetic of written languages.

From July through end of 2018, Sky One Art Gallery is proud to present Elements of Chinese Calligraphy – A Solo Exhibition by Tan Oe Pang. Three years after his last Chinese calligraphy solo show in 2015, Tan Oe Pang returns with an extensive three-part exhibition series, featuring ninety-one pieces of his calligraphy works written over the years. The first part will kick off from 20 July and runs until 29 August at the gallery. The calligraphy of Tan Oe Pang emphasises on essential basic skills such as handling of brush and mastering variations of strokes which make up all Chinese characters through diligent practice. Beginning with learning seal script, clerical script and regular script, the artist spent twenty years to hone the foundation skills of writing proper Chinese characters. Thereafter, he practised writing archaic inscriptions found on monumental stone steles, bronze vessels and eaves tiles. Over time, Tan Oe Pang was able to distil the essence of calligraphy from the evolvement of past script types. His calligraphy inherits many centuries of tradition – marrying the visual art forms and spirit of Chinese characters – while creating a distinctive artistic style of his own.
