About The Authors

T.K. Sabapathy has been writing on the art of Southeast Asia for over four decades (1973–2015), as a critic, curator and art historian. This collection of his work, representing the scope and depth of Sabapathy’s output, and highlighting his most important and influential writings, is also a survey of the vast changes in the landscape of art in the region over the period.

A historian and educator, penetrating critic and ardent advocate, Sabapathy’s early scholarly engagements were marked by clear commitments to the art historiography of the Hindu-Buddhist traditions of Southeast Asia. He later emerged as an eloquent proponent of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art. His art historical methods, critical documentation, deep dialogue with artists and detailed explication of their works have helped define Singapore and Malaysian art. His extensive studies of Southeast Asian art and artists have helped set the course of art discourse in the region.

Redza Piyadasa is a renowned Malaysian fine artist. He comes from Kuantan and was born in 1939 where he received his early education at the Sekolah Abdullah in Kuantan. He obtained his ‘Certificate in Education’ from the Institute of Education at the University of Birmingham in England where he would continue to study at the Hornsey College of Art in England where he obtained his Diploma in Art and Design in 1963.
