artcommune gallery is delighted to present, “Vistas of the Mind: Paintings by Tong Chin Sye”. An avid traveler, multi-media artist Chin Sye has journeyed across continents in his painterly quest for new sights and cultural understanding. His landscape paintings feature various cities across Asia, Europe and Latin America. Be it a bustling town scene or a quiet backyard in a provincial village; labourers by the seaside or folks conducting their daily routines amid Singapore’s ever-changing landscape, Chin Sye’s paintings absorb us through the curious, reflective lens of a traveler who explores the life and customs of others through the graininess of everyday life. The assiduous combination of East-West techniques also reflects his multi-faceted art training.
