Abstract:
Ng Eng Teng (b. 12 July 1934, Singapore–d. 4 November 2001, Singapore) was a sculptor and winner of the Cultural Medallion in visual arts in 1981. He learned painting under first-generation masters such as Georgette Chen and Liu Kang, and furthered his studies in ceramics in England. Having returned to Singapore in 1966, Ng maintained a prolific production throughout his career until his death in November 2001. One of the most renowned artists in Singapore, he is remembered for his large-scale sculptures gracing many public spaces as well as his introspective and whimsical interpretations of humanist themes in three-dimension.
