Beautiful Artworks and mesmerising to watch....

We visited Mr and Mrs Koh’s stall in Chinatown when we holidayed in Singapore - we were so captivated by watching him create an artwork whilst we were in his stall, that we spent a lot of time there.

We bought a number of souvenir related items for relatives as well as an actual artwork that we now have framed and hanging in our Dining room. I would certainly buy more - just beautiful!

Pig Farmer turned Artist

A small shopfront manned by a retired couple, the James is the artist and his wife, Daisy, manages the stall. James does painting on mostly silk. But usually most tourists would ask him to write their names in Chinese calligraphy. He would choose the appropriate Chinese characters and explain the meaning of each word. Every Chinese character for a name has to be properly chosen.

I had the good fortune of being introduced to him by a visiting Dutch friend. As we talked, I learnt that he started life as a pig farmer, even though he has deep interest in painting. A change of events in his working life directed him to his lifelong passion. So, if you drop by him, ask him about his experience as he writes and sells you a calligraphy of your name.
