Workshops and Events > Past Exhibitions Fantastic Universe: the imagination of Ng Eng Teng

Featuring artworks by the late Dr Ng Eng Teng (1934 - 2001) the exhibition illustrated aspects of the prolific career of this renowned Singaporean sculptor and painter. As a sculptor, Dr Ng is known for his figurative sculptures in many parts of Asia and around the world. His legacy in Singapore includes the Mother and Child bronze sculpture located in front of the Orchard Parade Hotel and The Explorer located at Singapore Art Museum. His outstanding achievements and contributions to the Singapore art scene also garnered him the Cultural Medallion in 1981. In this collaborative event between NAFA Art Galleries and family of the late artist, 192 sculptures and 22 paintings were drawn from the collection of the family. The collection unfolds the stylistic transitions of a creative and dedicated practice that defined both the art and life of this singular personality. Together with the artworks, the publication was a unique box set including an essay by Ms Bridget Tracy Tan, the Director of Institute of South East Asian Arts and Art Galleries.
