Born in Singapore 1976, Shih Yun began her artistic career after graduating from San Francisco Art Institute. In
2004, she founded instinc, an international artists' collective which has seen successful participations with artists
from UK, US, Europe, Japan & Singapore as well as corporate co-productions with Moleskine, Smirnoff and
Guinness. Apart from paintings and drawings, Shih Yun works with diverse mediums including lithography, screen
printing and painting directly on 16mm films.

Influenced by Abstract Expressionists, Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell and Franz Kline, she is known for her
strong energetic use of black ink and a passionate obsession with capturing the elusive moment that exists
between chaos and order. Shih Yun has exhibited at numerous leading galleries in Singapore and Europe. Her
recent exhibitions include 'Light from the East' in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and 'Eye Openers' in Brussels,
Belgium. Collections includes Sheraton Hotel, Guiyang China, Renaissance Beijing Hotel, China, Marina@Keppel
Bay and arts patron, Mr Koh Seow Chuan. In 2008, an artwork was created by Shih Yun to commemorate the
official opening of The Giving Place (National Volunteer & Philanthropy Center) by Prime Minister Lee Hsien
Loong. Her recent awards include 26th UOB Painting of the Year Competition Singapore 2007, Certificate of
Distinction and Highly commended entry(Abstract category). She recently also completed three artist residencies
from Brussels and Slovenia in 2008 and Bergen, Norway in 2009.
