The gorgeous Nanyang Art movement

It was totally unplanned, but while revisiting the amazing works of Singaporean artist Cheong Soo Pieng, we started pairing them with the interior projects of New York based Muriel Brandolini, and the result was too much fun.

Cheong Soo Pieng made his name in the 1950s as one of the pioneer Singaporean artist to launch the Nanyang Art Movement (a mix of Chinese pictorial techniques with French art influences). He was especially well-loved for his famous depictions of long-limbed Balinese ladies, while we fell for how uninhibited, rich in colour and personality both Cheong and Brandolini's works are.
