Mee Ai Om

Born in Korea, Om Mee Ai’s works are displayed in several museums and major collections worldwide. In 2014, she won the UOB Painting of the Year Award. “Art is a reflection of an internal reality and should intrigue and hopefully uplift the spirit, emotions, and mind. I try to achieve it through the medium of the abstract painting that displays the mixture of multiplied grids and translucent layers of colours. I believe that the way we perceive the artwork depends on the interaction between our inner experiences and the external physical factors like light, reflection, and time etc. Artwork becomes meaningful only when one encounters emotional contact with it.” (Om Mee Ai)
