Snippets from the 32nd UOB Painting of the Year

Stefanie Hauger's Space Odyssey.

The winning paintings from the 32nd UOB Painting of the Year are currently on display at 72-13 Gallery till 7 Dec 2013. The UOB Painting of the Year competition is the longest-running art competition in Singapore.

This year, the organizer has revised the award categories of the competition. Two distinct categories have been created, i.e. the Emerging Artist and the Established Artist. At this year's exhibition, winning entries from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand are being displayed.

Less than a week ago, I took a trip to 72-13 Gallery to view the winning paintings. The 2013 UOB Painting of the Year, "Space Odyssey" by Stefanie Hauger caught my eyes. Another painting which had caught my attention was Lim Quan Zhao's "The Transcendence of Love".

72-13 Gallery is located nearby Singapore Tyler Print Institute. To get to 72-13 Gallery, one can take bus services 32, 54, 139 or 195 to River Valley Road. Alternatively, the nearest MRT train stations are Clarke Quay and Dhoby Ghaut. It will take about 15 minutes to walk from the stations to the 72-13 Gallery.
