Having loved art since young and with a background in architecture, Charles Wong (Tze Chau) began painting in 2010. He has participated in group shows in Singapore, Thailand and India, and in 2018, he had his first solo show at a commercial gallery in
Singapore. He won the prestigious UOB Painting of the Year award in the established category in 2019, cementing his place in the art world.
Charles' art is a reflection of his strong emotions towards the universe and its infinite forms. He believes that at a macro level, there is one universal force that unites everything, while at a micro level, every being is made up of atoms that are essentially the same. Charles firmly believes that all beings are connected through interdependence and possess the same core within.
His works are made up of dotted calligraphic letters in various languages, symbolizing a unique emotion or concept. He strives to create artworks that are both visually appealing and thought provoking.
"Dots are used to form words in different languages. Words are the symbols of different
people and cultures. My aim is to create a bridge between different realms. I believe that
there could be harmony in this increasingly divisive world if we see beyond differences."
