MEET-THE-AUTHOR: Sonny Liew, "The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye"

  • Ngee Ann City 391 Orchard Road Singapore, 238872 Singapore (map)

Three-time 2017 Eisner Awards Winner Sonny Liew will be heading to Kinokuniya Singapore Main Store on Saturday, 5th August, 2pm, hot from his return from the 2017 Comic Convention International: San Diego, where he emerged as the first Singaporean to win the prestigious award for Best Writer/Artist, Best Publication Design and Best U.S. Edition of International Material – Asia.

The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is a biography showcasing the life and work of Chan Hock Chye, a pioneering but largely forgotten comics artist in Singapore. With a career spanning more than five decades, from pre-independent Singapore through its three Prime Ministers, Chan’s work reflects the changing political and economic environment in Singapore.

Containing Chan’s original illustrations, paintings and sketches, this is a groundbreaking work and labour of love aimed at recapturing the portrait of an artist, whose deep passion for comics and country is given a fitting tribute by award-winning comics artist Sonny Liew.

VENUE: Kinokuniya (Main Store)
ADDRESS: 391 Orchard Road, Takashimaya Shopping Centre Ngee Ann City, #04-20/20B/20C/20E, Singapore 238872
