About the Artist:

Matthias Chua (b. 1990) was born in Singapore, raised in Myanmar and New Zealand and educated in Russia. His unique appreciation for the distinct character and manifestations of beauty surrounding him reflects the melting-pot of experiences in his uncommon journey.

In 2019, he graduated with distinction from the prestigious Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg.

He draws inspiration from contemplative and candid portrayals of everyday life by the great Russian masters, the exuberant use of colour and light by Joaquin Sorolla, and the vital and emotive expressions of Franz Kline and Cy Twombly. Matthias’ art reflects his constant search for intrinsic qualities of the human condition and explores ties that bind us through our universal shared experiences. His pieces, which accentuate the vibrance and multi-faceted essence of life, have found homes in private collections in the USA, China, Russia, as well as Singapore.
