Rise of Singapore student at Sovereign Art Prize auction

She's completely unknown, still a student, but her painting Bob.2 was in a way the "star" lot of the Sovereign Art Prize Singapore auction. While it didn't actually fetched the top prize of the night ($20,000 achieved by Korean-born Om Mee Ai's abstract red piece), Denise Jillian Tan’s painting attracted the most spirited bidding of the night. In less than 40s, the somber portrait soared past its estimated of $2,000-$3,100 to fetch $9,000 as bidders battled it out throughout the room obviously impressed by the technical maturity the young painter is showing.. I say, she's the one to watch!!
