Significant achievements in art notwithstanding, Chen Chong Swee was also a prolific, vivid essayist. His writings—collated here and also translated into English for the first time—range from the value of art education to the responsibilities of the art community, and are imbued with ardour and vigorous clarity. This compilation provides a compelling contribution to our understanding of the artist as a man of unwavering focus, whose thoughts cleaved to the advancement of art.
