One of Singapore’s leading ink painters, Chua Ek Kay (1947-2008) shares his artistic journey through an exhibition called ‘After The Rain’. Chua’s success at his first show in 1988 led on to him becoming a full-time artist within two decades.

His paintings are often associated with watery reflections, lotus ponds or rain due to his fondness for water. It represents growth and revival after any calamity, just like Chua’s journey as an artist.
