Wee Shoo Leong 黃樹良 (b. 1958)

Wee Shoo Leong (b. 1958, Singapore) is a Singapore artist who paints primarily in oil. Wee graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1979. In 1984, he won the UOB Painting of the Year art competition. He was awarded a silver medal from Salon 85 in Paris in 1985, and the 1st Commonwealth Foundation Fellowship, London in 1986.

Wee is known for his still life oil paintings of identifiable everyday objects such as birdcages, vases, earthern jars, flowers and fruits, set against blank backgrounds which give the works clarity and a sense of quietness and harmony.

These include solo exhibitions at Art Forum, Singapore (2021 & 1992) and at the National Museum Art Gallery, Singapore (1985). His group exhibitions include one at Fullerton Hotel Heritage Gallery in Singapore (2015), First Bru-Sin Art Exhibition in Brunei (1989) and Many in One: 25 Years of Singapore Art in Washington, DC (1991).
