Gan Tee Sheng

b. 1984, Malaysia

A graduate of Daesin Academy of Fine Art, Gan Tee Sheng is interested in human emotions, especially the repressed feelings that run deep beneath our innermost thoughts.
Gan aims to investigate illusion, intuition, and the desires that surface in the subconscious mind, reflecting on how people address sex, desire, and negative thinking. Human figures are often the core subject matter in Tee Sheng’s paintings, integrated with interior spaces, utilitarian forms, and peculiar objects. With a visceral and raw perspective, all his work explores the internal world that is the human mind, disclosing the intimate relationship between humans and their objects of desire, and what we often keep hidden and isolated within us.
Over the span of his career, Tee Sheng’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows; in 2023 he participated in the group exhibition ‘Art Formosa’ in Taiwan. Tee Sheng has been awarded twice for the UOB Painting Of The Year in 2011 and 2016 respectively. In 2013, he won the Top Award in the Established Artist category for the UOB Painting of the Year competition. As the selected artist at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum’s Residency Program in 2014, and with several sold-out shows under his belt, Tee Sheng has garnered a following of collectors and is a favoured artist in the Southeast Asian region.
