The Art of Chua Mia Tee: A Portrait of a Life's Work is an ambitious and significant publication that - for the first time in a single volume - brings together hundreds of pieces of art by Chua Mia Tee, one of Singapore's foremost painters.

Following a comprehensive research and curation process, this book contains more than 300 paintings, illustrations, sketches and sculptures by Chua Mia Tee, including many that have never been seen in public or published before.

Of course, his best-known works are present, among them "National Language Class" and "Epic Poem of Malaya". Chua's beautiful paintings are complemented by three essays from prominent writers and art historians.

Commentaries and notes on particularly notable pieces are also included throughout, whilst the artist can be heard in his own words in the book's Afterword. By documenting the life and work of one of Singapore's most influential artists, The Art of Chua Mia Tee is a highly important addition to the canon of works on Southeast Asian art history.
