Singaporean member honoured with highest international award by Asian Geographic mag




Hi everyone, it's been a long time since I've actively participated in the forum discussions, and hope everyone's well.

I would like to share my joys from this really shocking development in my career. Some years ago I've worked with the magazine on an article, and my painting was used as cover art to supplement the main feature of the issue. In 2009 they had a panel of experts as judges to review all the images from the last 10 years. And that cover art was being picked as the Cover Art Of The Decade.

This was an unexpected turn of events, and a real honour. I especially feel I don't deserve it since I'm still so young to get something like that. But I feel privileged to be a part of this magnificent group of portrait artists, who have shared and nurtured my mind all these years. So this success goes out to all of you, who have been friends with me here for the longest time.

Kindly view this link to see the award announcement from Asian Geographic .

Thanks everyone!
