Aaron Gan is the 2015 UOB Painting of the Year, Gold Award, Established Artist Category, Singapore winner.
Born in Singapore in 1979, Gan graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce (Dean’s List) from the University of Western Australia in 2003. As a child, he made a promise to himself that he would become a professional artist when he grew up. In 2012, he gave up his corporate career to fulfil that promise.
With his exuberant and innovative painting style, Gan has earned numerous sell-out shows under his belt. He has been covered extensively by the press and media since his debut, and has been collected and commissioned widely both in Singapore and internationally, including by the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, GIC, United Overseas Bank, The Association of Banks in Singapore, Julius Baer, Mediacorp, Wheelock Properties, Keppel FELS, Faber Castell and Nespresso.
