How many people know that our pioneer artist Aw Tee Hong signs off his paintings as ‘Waldon’ during his earlier days? Aw Tee Hong is a Singaporean artist who is known for his works in oil and acrylic, watercolour, Chinese ink, charcoal and sculptures. Born in Wenchang, China, Aw migrated with his parents to Kelantan, Malaysia at the age of 8 and later relocated to Singapore in 1950. Here he studied art at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and later went on to pursue higher ed ucation in art at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China in 1956. Aw collaborated with the Singapore Tourism Promotion Board during the1980s to create and develop a range of Chinese Opera Masks which later became iconic souvenirs that helped promote Singapore as a tourist destination. Additionally, Aw was often invited by STPB to participate in trade shows to various countries in Asia, Middle East and Europe to demonstrate the uniqueness and richness of Singapore Art. In October last year, one of his oil paintings also fetch a record price of SGD 198k at Sotheby's Auction in Hong Kong. This Watercolour piece titled ‘Balinese Dance’ is available for sale in our new gallery space. #ArtSocial #singapore #artist #art #oilpainting
