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.

Full article can be read from the following scanned images:

On 10 June 2009, I was engaged by Subhas, famous Indian contemporary artist based in Singapore to document her Masters Degree Graduation artworks/installation during the opening reception of “The Elephant in the Room” at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. I’m proud be an official artist’s photographer for the night. 😉

I was amazed when my friend and student told me that my article on OMY.sg was published in U-Weekly 优周刊, Issue No.174, Pg. 70 & My Paper 我报, 6 Apr 09, Pg  B12. It’s interesting to see this article getting published in hardcopy newspaper and magazine, but sad to see that my nude painting was cropped. Such a good way to censor my paintings…

Special Thanks to Wendy Tan for My Paper & Rowena Lim for U-Weekly notice.

I was honoured to be the official photographer for the Opening of Afterlife of The Tang Nobility at SG Private Banking Gallery, Alliance Française de Singapour , 7 April 2009. My mission was to document the display layout of the exhibition, nice food and the happenings throughout the night~ L’art est grand !
