    Tan Choh Tee (b. 1942) arrived in Singapore from Guangdong, China in 1953. He was taught by pioneer artists Georgette Chen, Liu Kang, and Cheong Soo Pieng.
     
    The second generation of Singapore artists distinguished themselves by pushing the creative boundaries of the established Nanyang style while retaining its essence through the employment of non-conventional materials and mediums in their works. Born in the 1930s and 40s, these artists came into their prime in the 1960s and 70s, working against a backdrop of turbulent times of political and social changes.

    The mood of the post-war era, self-rule, rapid urbanisation challenged these to forge new aesthetics and represent the country's social and cultural identity time. Evening at the Eating Stall was exhibited in January 1978 at the Singapore Historical Buildings Art Exhibition organised by the Ministry of Culture.
