Vanessa Liem is a Singapore based artist. She graduated under the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) in Visual Arts at School of the Arts, Singapore (SOTA) in 2020.


Using paint as her primary medium, she explores the human condition through surrealism and alternative depictions of the human form, reinterpreting her subject matter in abstract terms. Her works are emotive responses to daily experiences, questioning and exploring basic narratives that are relevant to life and humankind; especially so when we have adapted to the media-centric world we live in now.


Vanessa Liem has participated and curated several SOTA art exhibitions. For her work, she won Gold for the 2019 UOB Painting of the Year, Emerging Category.
