Driven by a passion to encourage talented artists in their creative pursuits, UnitedOverseas Bank (UOB) started the Painting of the Year competition in Singapore in 1982.Today, the annual art competition is the longest-running in Singapore and one of the most prestigious in Southeast Asia.
Held in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, the UOB Painting of the Year competition has helped to uncover a new generation of Southeast Asian artists and contributed to greater awareness and appreciation of art.

Mr Goh Beng Kwan, one of Singapore’s masters of modern art, was the inaugural winner of the competition in 1982. Mr Goh went on to receive Singapore’s most distinguished art award, the Cultural Medallion, in 1989.
