Zelin Seah

Zelin Seah (b.1980, Malaysia) lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Seah received BFA at University of Central England (2007). Zelin is an artist acclaimed for his semi- abstract depictions of the contemporary socioeconomic phenomenon, by adopting fragmented daily life space images. His black and white layering brush method allows for structure like inner section that cannot be view through surface; thus, Zelin’s paintings are more complicated than what can be captured through the eye. Zelin suggested an interconnected space, forming the hidden structure and law in life, through such fragmented portrayal.

His works have been acquired for public and private collections including National Art Gallery Malaysia and University of Central England. He has exhibited widely in South East Asia, United Kingdom and Germany, including The National Art Center Japan (2011), Saatchi Gallery United Kingdom (2014), Art Stage Singapore (2015, 2016), and recently at Subject-Object Gallery Berlin (2018). His awards include: The Jury’s selection of recommended works at the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival (2011), The Young Guns Awards Malaysia (2013), and Silver Category for the UOB Painting of The Year Malaysia (2016, 2017). Public collections include: Singapore Art Museum (SAM), National Visual Art Gallery (Malaysia), HOM Art Trans, Birmingham City University, University of Central England.
