Established in 2004, INSTINC is an artist-run institution founded by local artist Yeo Shih Yun, to promote a new language of art. Following the tradition of painting, INSTINC has pushed the paradigm to realize a wide array of art forms, including but not limited to installation, performance and video art. One of INSTINC's key missions is to encourage collaboration, cultural exchange and sharing of ideas in contemporary art with local as well as international artists.

Hence in 2009, INSTINC's international artist residency program was launched. Through exhibitions, art workshops, artists' talks & collaborations, INSTINC aims to establish an exciting platform where artists and public can engage with contemporary art and critical discourses. To further promote the contemporary art scene in Singapore, in 2011, INSTINC spearheaded its inaugural “Squares Invasion” Painting Competition in search of artists at the forefront of contemporary painting. In 2014, INSTINC celebrated a decade of art and collaboration with 10 artists from around the world. In 2016, instinctive: a collective of local & international artists was born.
