Ang Chee Yong


Ang Chee Yong transitioned from a career in Electronic Telecommunication to become a ceramist, graduating with high distinction in ceramics and distinction in drawing from the National Art School in Australia in 2012. He’s received ‘The Ceramics Technical Prize’ in Sydney, Australia, and his work has been exhibited in various countries including Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

Ang Chee Yong draws inspiration from Bauhaus (material understanding and study), Marcel Duchamp (Rotoreliefs), Edward Muybridge (Animal Locomotion), and Fibonacci (the Italian mathematician). This influence drives him to experiment with raw materials in glazes and diverse firing techniques. His artwork, whether ceramic or drawing, seeks to express the passage of time through overlapping, layering, shifting planes, and rotating axes. At the same time, he appreciates the beauty of simple, timeless forms brought to life by glazes.

In recent years, he has been an active committee member for the Sculpture Society in Singapore and the Whampoa Ceramic Club.
