Jack Tia Kee Woon易其文

Member of Singapore Watercolour Society and has held key positions in the Society’s committee including the post of General Secretary from 2001 to 2008. Over the years, Tia Kee Woon was awarded with several art awards and had participated in competitions and exhibitions.


Tia Kee Woon’s artworks bring out the vibrancy of acrylic medium while not losing the freshness and transparency of traditional watercolour. His choice of colours and delicate execution of the medium make his approach very suitable for complex landscape subject matters. In short, he has reinvented watercolour with acrylic medium.


Building from his strong design concepts, Kee Woon loves to work with square format instead of rectangular ones. The square, being a contemporary scale, transforms classical subjects like Singapore streets, heritage buildings, Chinatown and Singapore River into their fresh new look. He reinvents water media and his media reinvents Singapore landscapes.
