Yeo Jian Long (1983 - )

Yeo Jian Long (b. 1983) is a visual artist based in Singapore. He attained a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art in 2013 and Diploma in Fine Art (Western Painting) in 2012 from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. He was awarded the Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Scholarship for his outstanding performance during his undergraduate studies. Before enrolling at NAFA, Yeo studied at Nanyang Polytechnic, obtaining a Diploma in Digital Media Design.

For Yeo, drawing is a profoundly complex mode of art. In his oeuvre, he explored how the act of accumulative mark-making creates amorphous and fluid lines and shapes. Yeo’s Paracosm series, which depict forms that resemble celestial objects, are products of his philosophy. While that collection is illustrated in pen, the artist is proficient in various mediums, including ink and charcoal. Nonetheless, his works, which evoke a dissolved or smoke-like effect, reflect Yeo’s distinct style in capturing the ephemeral. His artworks have been displayed in numerous exhibitions, such as Chan Hampe Gallery and Goodman Art Centre. In 2016, Yeo received the accolade of Young Talent Programme Winners’ Solo Exhibitions by ION Art and Singapore’s Affordable Art Fair.​​​​​​
