Our third art collaboration with Arc Children’s Centre showcases watercolour paintings that are inspired and guided by Singapore artist Aaron Gan.
“This project tells a story about a chick looking for its paintbrush. The chick represents our children and the paintbrush their dreams and aspirations. We hope to inspire our children to discover their dreams as they do through their colourful journey of life.”
About Aaron Gan
Born in 1979, Aaron Gan is one of Singapore’s most exciting watercolour artists, well-known for his exuberant and innovative painting style. He was one of only three selected Asians, and the only Singaporean, to participate in the International Watercolour Biennial 2012 in Belgium.
In 2013, Aaron held his sold-out, debut solo exhibition, and has since been invited for several international showcases, as well as public and private commissions. An accomplished talent, his works are also regularly featured in broadcast and print media. In 2015, he added to his accolades another prestigious award for his painting Starry Starry Night.
