He often cycle there and pass by the temple. Itcaptivated him and he wanted to create it. This painting was inspired by watercolourist, Ng woon Lam from malaysia.

  • Artist Biography

    Raymond belongs to a new and emerging generation of Singaporean artists at the forefront of Singapore’s evolution into a Renaissance city. A vocal and colourful individual, he excels in both realist and abstract renditions in oil and acrylic. For Raymond, painting is therapeutic as it helps him find peace and fullness. Hence, it is not surprising that his body of work reveals a gentler, softer side of an outwardly bold and brassy individual. Raymond received a BA in Fine Art from the University of Tasmania. He was honoured with the UOB Painting of the Year award in 1993 and the National Arts Council Young Artist Award in 2001. His works can be found in the collections of President S.R. Nathan, Ambassador-at-Large, Professor Tommy Koh, Professor Arthur Lim, Mr Tan Swie Hian, Ms Chng Seok Tin, Singapore Management University, United Overseas Bank and the National Arts Council.
