Chia Yu Chian (b.1936) studied under Chinese painting master and Nanyang Academy founder Chen Wen Hsi before going on to L’École des Beaux- Arts in Paris on scholarship in 1959. While the influence of the Parisian school understandably dominates the early work of this period, and the 1980s saw the artist embark on a new and very distinctive series of work on local street life, the main body of his oeuvre is characterized by a successful “Nanyang style” fusion of French and Chinese fundamentals.
