Jehan Chan was born in 1937 in Melaka. The late artist was an outstanding watercolourist and achieved fame for it. He reflected the best of his tutelage in the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (NAFA, Singapore), under the personal supervision of the great Cheong Soo Pieng. In this particular mixed media on rice paper painting, Jehan depicted a beautiful coastal town which instantaneously exudes a certain sense of calmness to the viewer. The artist employed a mix of cool tones blue hues that blend seamlessly. It evokes nostalgia and one can get lost in this painting for a long time.
