Event Details

Born in 1937, Singaporean artist Ho Kah Leong is a prominent figure in Singapore’s artistic circle. He trained at NAFA for a short stint in the mid-1950s, acquiring exposure to the artistic climate of the times. He later graduated from Nanyang University in 1963, following which he became a teacher before entering politics in 1966. Consistent and prolific, Ho favoured painting en plein air, a technique that captured the luminous effects of natural light on tropical landscapes and its atmosphere. In this retrospective, woodcuts from the 1950s – 60s, preparatory sketches, his signature oil and acrylic paintings as well as Chinese calligraphy chart the visual journey of Ho’s development as an artist, reflecting his humanistic interest in life and the workings of the cultivated mind.
