P. Gnana paints, sculpts and creates conceptual installations, as one of Singapore’s leading artists. He has obtained a highly-captivated audience in the Lion City and internationally, for the aesthetic and conceptual niche that he has created for himself within the ever-competitive dynamics of urban art-making, This, he continues to achieve, by constantly counter-challenging or taming the forces that urge him to dispel his obsessive fascination towards the cow, a recurring symbol in his art. Gnana’s paintings are in the collections of the President of the Republic of Singapore, and the Singapore Art Museum, National Heritage Board. Gnana is a recipient of the LASALLE Scholarship of the LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore), where he received his formal training in the art of painting. In 2005, he was commissioned by Singapore’s Ascendas to create 14 large-scaled paintings with an abstract expressionistic motivation for the International Tech Park in Chennai.

“My love for my mother, my heritage, and my belief that life is all about relationships, inspires my paintings and sculptures. In many cultures, the mother is seen as the primary caregiver and nurturer of the child, and this role is viewed as essential to the child's development and well-being. The universal sentiment of a mother's love, care, and protection for her child is also shared by both Vietnam and Singapore.”
