2020 UOB Painting of the Year Regional Winners’ Showcase
From 14 December 2020
UOB Art Gallery, 80 Raffles Place, UOB Plaza 1, Ground Floor

As the leading patron of art in Asia, UOB believes in the power of art to unify. Our theme for this year’s competition is Solidarity. Drawing influence from culture, experiences and the environment, these winning paintings are distinguished by their compelling stories and the strong emotions they evoke.

At UOB, we recognise the important role of art in fostering social inclusiveness. It connects people and communities, celebrates cultures and enriches lives. That is why, for almost four decades, we have been supporting the creative pursuits of established and emerging artists across Asia.
