June 12 1956: Exhibition featuring Malay Niubizi will be opening at the end of the month

Back

After arriving in Singapore last month, by invitation of the Singapore Chinese Society, cartoonist Huang Yao toured Singapore and completed a collection of paintings called “Malaya Niubizi”, consisting of fifty pieces. It is noted by the Chinese Society President, Li Shaomao, that from the 29th of this month onwards, the Society will be holding a “Niubizi Cartoon Exhibition” at the British Council on Stamford Road. At the same time, Mr. Huang’s coloured masterpieces of  “Education of a Son", "Mister Fluke" and other collections will also be exhibited. His works have a profound sense of humour and are very educational. It is also likely that Mr. Huang’s unique Chinese brush ink painting in "Sketches of Siam" would also be exhibited together. It is estimated that two hundred pieces will be exhibited, and we are hoping to see Huang Yao’s traditional Chinese paintings and his rare "upside down calligraphy".
