Genevieve Chua (born 1984, Singapore) is a painter who works primarily through abstraction. Chua employs a method of working that unfurls and reveals the painter's process through diagram, palimpsest, syntax, and the glitch. While notions of nature and wilderness persist across several works, the form taken by their exhibitions – image, text or object – is disrupted through painting.

Chua has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Singapore and internationally, including participation in the 10th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT 10), Brisbane, 2021. Chua has also completed residencies with the Gyeonggi Creation Centre, South Korea; CCC Shizouka, Japan; STPI, Singapore; The Banff Centre, Canada; and London’s Royal College of Art, UK. Furthermore, prominent regional and international institutions have recently acquired Chua’s works, including recent acquisitions by Swiss Re, Switzerland, Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), and Singapore Art Museum (SAM).

They were conferred the Young Artist Award (2012) by the National Arts Council, Singapore.
