July 2009

On 30 May 2009, I was invited by Ms Sabrina Long, Head of 3D Department, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts to conduct 1 of the 3D workshop for Thumbs Up Newspaper (大拇指)readers. My theme was based on “Architecture”, so the kids have to build their own futuristic architecture model from recycle materials. Assisted by Teo Huey Chia & Joe, they were of very great help and we all had our fair share of fun together with the kids.

The following photo documentation of the workshop is by Huey Chia. Special thanks to her for the marvelous photos.

Students listening to my long-winded lecture, they just can’t wait to start. Joe in grey standing at the back.

Conceptualizing through sketching & drawing

Everyone was focusing on constructing their own futuristic architecture.

It’s been sometime since i had time to update my blog. I was so busy in the month of June that the 1st 2weeks, i was conducting workshops non-stop, back-to-back. On the 3rd Week, i visited the beautiful ancient ruins of Cambodia- Angkor Wat. Unfortunately, I was down with a food poisoning on my 4th & 5th day there… After returning on the 4th week, i was called back for Reservist (called to serve the nation) for a week…

I should start my new update with an interview article before all the photos and art pieces comes in. Interviewed by Kelvin Ng for Wealth Magazine Vol. III No.1: Man of Values (2009), Special Report: Singing for Supper- Artists who ‘suffer’ for their art.
