Yeoh Kean Thai is internationally recognised through his prestigious awards including the Philip Morris Art Award, the Freeman Fellowship, 2008 and the Commonwealth Award – International Artist Residency (2009). His works embody an artistic language to comment on environment, social identity and individual introspection. Kean Thai is a multifaceted artist who dabbles in metal sculptures, canvases and larger public art installations. His favourite subject on canvas works are metal and he intertwined his life story with his artistic expression as well as social remarks. In Rearranged, Yeoh tastefully transforms the unpleasantness of rust into a work of art. As one who appreciates the natural order and finds beauty in it.
