Hanging Out Till Late

About Artwork

“Hanging Out till Late”, a portraiture of a melancholic supper scene going late into the night, and the characters look all the more alone and distanced in the absence of daylight. The people in the paintings are in various states; some are together but alone, unbothered by one another’s presence. Some are with others, they may be speaking, or they may be alone, and background by a pair of migrant workers fidgeting on their handphones. In addition, this painting shows an unimaginable haunting elegance amidst the combination throbbing of life.

Artist Profile

Yeo Tze Yang (1994)
Tze Yang's shaping of these life scenes shows a sense of beauty and elegance, obviously derived from his persistent pursuit of the formal language, painting. A self-taught painter, Tze Yang, is surprisingly very accomplished. The most impressive thing in his painting language is his use of brushwork – people and scenery is shaped with free and easy brushwork, free but finely controlled with an elegant sense of rhythm. Such brushwork, combined with subtle and comely colours, offers a calm and elegant formal aesthetic independent from the forms and situations depicted, showed his skilled artistic techniques. Tze Yang won the UOB Painting of the Year, Silver Award in 2016.
