CHEONG SOO PIENG : Visions of Southeast Asia


Cheong Soo Pieng was a pion­eer artist who cre­ated visu­ally fresh pic­tures of South­east Asia’s land­scapes and people. By mar­ry­ing the artistic tra­di­tions of the East and the West, Soo Pieng broke new ground in the way the trop­ics were portrayed.

Com­mon South­east Asian sub­jects — a fisherman’s kelong, two sarong-clad women on the way to the mar­ket, a group of people busy dry­ing fish, the grace­ful fig­ure of a Balinese dan­cer — take on new styl­ised forms through Soo Pieng’s deft use of pictorial devices and tech­niques from dif­fer­ent cul­tures and tra­di­tions such as Chinese ink paint­ing, West­ern oil paint­ing, Cubism, geo­met­ric abstrac­tion and way­ang kulit.

This book is the first of its kind on Soo Pieng. The 94 col­our plates present the reader with the breadth and com­plex­ity of this Nan­yang artist’s extens­ive oeuvre. The chapters include a wealth of per­sonal pho­to­graphs as well as the latest research on the artist. Pic­tures of recently unearthed draw­ings, sketches, water­col­ours and wood­cut prints shed fur­ther light on Soo Pieng’s per­sonal philo­sop
