“This is a painting done in 1986. From 1987 - 1989, Chen Wen Hsi devoted himself to the painting of gibbons. In 1989, he fell ill and after that, the lines were not as straight, and the form of the gibbons are painted in a more abstracted manner. “ - Mr. Johnny Quek, Director of Merlin Gallery.
We thank Mr. Koh Tiam Teck for the generous loaning of his artwork to be exhibited in this historic showcase.
