Tan Siang Hon 

Member of the Singapore Watercolour Society

Art has always been a part of my life. But it’s only in recent decades that what has always been in the background found a new voice in my soul, especially as I learn to embrace the different cultures of the world - both here in Singapore and overseas.

Watercolour is the main medium I work in. I like its transparency, fluidity and dynamism. But all these mean it can also be very unforgiving. So all art is a journey of faith - trusting in an unknown Divine to make accidents into a thing of beauty. To this end I paint, seeking to capture this beauty and glory unseen except for souls awakened to anticipate the charm that’s within us and around us all.

When I put my brushes and palette down, I enjoy talking to people from all walks of life, or settle into a book and music from the 80’s. I am married to my best friend and soulmate, and have 3 boys and a dog who have no idea how proud I am of them.
