is found at the intersection of art + music

Heartened by the warm reception at the first Wonder event on 2 April with AUSRA and Randolf, we have decided to start this music meets art series where we showcase a talented musician and artist.

For this second instalment, we present singer-songwriter Jean Tan and award winning artist, Namiko Chan. Expect an enjoyable afternoon of original songs while Namiko paints profiles as part of her Profiling 2016 project.

About Jean Tan

Jean has performed at the Sports Hub and Gardens by the Bay for SEA Games 2015, having written a song for the games called 'Colours'. She also opened for Michael W. Smith on his Singapore tour in 2013. She regularly performs at public spaces, art cafes, and events for social causes.

About Namiko Chan

Namiko Chan Takahashi has been painting since she was 6 years old. She has garnered national and regional accolades during her art career. She holds a Master of Arts in Contemporary Practice, in addition to a law degree and a post-graduate Diploma in Education.

Namiko is one of a select few Singaporean artists to have trained at the prestigious Art Students League of New York (1999-2002). She studied under prominent artists such as Mary Beth McKenzie, Daniel Greene and Harvey Dinnerstein.

In 2006 Namiko won the UOB Painting of the Year award with a nude portrait entitled “Charisse”. A panel of international judges including Mr. Kwok Kian Chow, (Director of the Singapore Museum) noted that it was “a truly powerful work… with a masterly handling of colour, composition and tone”. It was unanimously selected as the grand prize winner out of 1,400 submissions by nearly 1,000 established and emerging artists.

Namiko’s work hangs in private and public collections including the Istana, the United Overseas Bank, Sentosa Golf Club and the soon-to-be-opened National Art Gallery of Singapore.
