Biographical Text

Cheo Chai-Hiang (b. 1946, Singapore) is one of Singapore’s most significant artists of the second generation. In the 1970s and ‘80s, Cheo was making a name for himself outside of the country, and, more importantly, embracing conceptualism. He is broadly remembered for 5’ x 5’ (Singapore River), a work held up today as one of the first works of conceptual art by a local artist.
