Zelin Seah

b. 1980, Malaysia
Lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Zelin Seah received a BFA at University of Central England (2007). Zelin’s semi-abstract depictions offer a deconstructed aesthetic of everyday scenes. He rejects the often deceptive appearances of everyday life, suggesting an inner space in the mind, looking inward to the human condition today, under the challenge of science.

His works have been acquired for public and private collections including National Art Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum and University of Central England. He has exhibited widely in South East Asia, United Kingdom and Germany, including The National Art Center Japan (2011), Saatchi Gallery United Kingdom (2014), Art Stage Singapore (2015, 2016), and recently Kunst im park at Burg Stargard, Germany (2019). His awards include: The Jury’s selection of recommended works at the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival (2011), The Young Guns Awards Malaysia (2013), and Silver Category for the UOBPainting of The Year Malaysia (2016, 2017).

Public collections include: ILHAM Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum (SAM), National Visual Art Gallery (Malaysia), HOM Art Trans, University of Central England.
