Artist Profile

Ye Ruoshi is a Singaporean painter (full-time) renown for her flower inspired oil paintings. She first debut as a professional painter in 2004 with a solo exhibition entitled 'Flowerism' featuring 100 oil paintings. That was after spending a decade of her life as an illustrator and account executive for a graphic design firm which she co-founded after graduating from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in 1993. Though she majored in graphic design at NAFA, her passion has always been for drawing and paintings.

She was accepted as a member of Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (APAD or Association of Artists of Various Resources) in the year 2000 and has actively participated in their exhibitions and has received numerous other invitations from various organisations.

Ruoshi's paintings celebrate our existentiality through her eloquent transformation of tropical flowers that line our streets into splendid representation of bliss. Spider lilies and heliconias are among her favourite species. Besides her passion for flowers and paintings, she is also active in the Cantonese opera scene as a leisure singer/ performer.
