During the Singapore Yacht Show, we were delighted to bring the concept of Sanlorenzo and Art on board the award winning South-East Asia Premiere Sanlorenzo Yacht SL78 with a Singapore based abstract expressionist painter using ink in unconventional ways, Shih Yun Yeo. Specially curated artworks adorned the saloon and cabins as guests viewed the yacht-turned-floating art exhibit..
Sanlorenzo actively works with the art world worldwide, but this time the art connection became more localised and Asia-centric. The selection of Asia-flavoured paintings elaborating on the pursuit of freedom and inspired by the sea was available for guests to enjoy throughout the show, and a meeting with the artist herself was organised on 13th April 6-9pm at a VIP Sanlorenzo and Art Soiree.
Born in Singapore 1976, Shih Yun is a full-time artist and Director of INSTINC, an independent artist-run space. She received her Bachelor of Business Administration (Marketing) from National University of Singapore, Diploma in Communications Design from Lasalle College of the Arts and Post- Baccalaureate (Painting) from San Francisco Art Institute in 2002. Yeo Shih Yun is known to reinterpret the very act of ink painting with striking results.
Her experimentations of fusing the traditional form with contemporary mediums like new media or performance art have garnered much acclaim, including a commission by the Singapore Art Museum, winning the Sovereign Asian Art Prize People’s Choice Award in 2012 and being awarded a Certificate of Distinction and Highly Commended Entry at the UOB Painting of the Year Competition in 2007.
Her painting at the Sovereign Asian Art Prize was auctioned by Christie’s Asia in 2012. Her recent exhibition was in NUS MUSEUM titled “Scholars and ink”.
For 60 years Sanlorenzo has been building high quality custom designed motoryachts, distinguishing themselves by a timeless elegance and simplicity of form, the expression of refined luxury, revealed through the selection of materials and the care for the smallest details. The strong link to the art and design word is deeply rooted within Sanlorenzo’s core values, and is certainly one of the reasons that contributes to the high esteem for the sophisticated work of this shipyard.
