Suk Hian-Tai was born in Malaysia and is living in London, studying fine art at the college of art & design in Chelsea.
Her subject matter and style are influenced by the place where she was born, Melaka(Malaysia). It is a colonial melting pot in which Portuguese, Chinese, Indian, Baba-Nyonya and Malay cultural strands mingle and intertwine, creating an intensely rich and colourful background. The colour she uses and the scenes she portrays are all derived from the way she lived and the surroundings she was brought up in as a child.
Her painting have a row and rough style, she like to use bold, primitive elements together with vibrant colours to reflect the tropical nature of her childhood environment. Through these elements she brings out the relationship between humanity and nature, especially between men, women, chidren, animals and the jungle. The paintings are crude but despite this there are strong feelings of homeliness, an everyday calmness only attainable through childhood innocence.
