Lives and Works: Singapore
Ong is a contemporary artist who works with historical and cinematic material, fluidly recombining these pictorial sources in his painting practice as explorations of memory, loss and nostalgia. At the age of 16, he was the youngest winner of Singapore's prestigious art prize, the UOB Painting of the Year award, and a year later, he had his first solo exhibition in the presence of his excellency President S. R. Nathan at Jendela, Esplanade. He has since exhibited in group shows at Singapore Art Museum (2007, 2012 and 2013); Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (2007); ARTSingapore, Suntec City (2010); Altering Alvar Aalto, Asian Civilisations Museum (2010) and Great Peranakans (2015), The Peranakan Museum. A former architecture student at National University of Singapore, he is now reading Fine Art in the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford.
