Congratulations to our Fine Arts lecturer, Seah Ze Lin, in winning the 2022 UOB Painting of the Year (Malaysia) award! In its 41st year, the UOB Painting of the Year competition is one of Southeast Asia’s most prestigious annual art awards. Having competed in the Established Artist category, his artwork titled “地皮 - Skin of Land” refers to the exhausted natural resources in a form of an animal hunted and killed for its skin. Through his art, he lamented the way our lands have changed due to human development and destruction, and dedicates it to the animals that were forced to stray and wander, having lost their habitats. His artwork will be competing with the top winners from Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia for the prestigious 41st UOB Southeast Asian Painting of the Year award next. Congratulations Ze Lin, we will be rooting for your win!
