Making Art Life: Ho Kah Leong 60 years and beyond
何家良写生回顾展: 情系丹青一甲子

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 - 1960s, preparatory sketches, his signature oil and acrylic paintings as well as Chinese calligraphy were on display, charting a visual journey of Ho’s development as an artist and his humanistic interest in life.
