Due to some copyright issue with Singapore Press, we've taken out all our publicity articles from this page. However,in order not to waste it, we've decided to used this page to introduce to you our talented artist who painstakingly responsible for every stroke of all the artworks you see on this website.

Hi, my name is Reggie Wan, a self-taught portrait & caricature artist as well as the founder of Portrait Studio Singapore,established since 1998. Born in Ipoh, Malaysia in 1963, a Singapore permanent resident. I have been drawing portrait as hobby since 10 years old. During the 70's,I've won many prizes drawing portraits of movie stars as well as famous singers in magazines such as Movie News,Fanfare,etc.


Working as an Interior Designer for 16 years before trying my luck in doing what I like most,the so-called portrait art.It has given me self satisfaction of being able to capture human features to near perfection.The most challenging part is the level of resemblance I can achieved, all by my bare hand. A rare hand indeed.
From the beginning,I started using pencil to sketch my portraits using grid lines & gradually learning the how to sketch with free hand before upgrading to using charcoal & soft-pastel mediums. After I set up my studio in Far East Plaza, I realised that I didn't have enough variety to offer my customers.In order to be more versatile,I explored into more mediums such as acrylic & oil paint on canvass & recently watercolor. Along the way,I've also explored into another form of art call 'Caricature' or 'Cartoonistic Portrait' which is very popular among people from the corporate world in Singapore.


Although my main interest is all about human features, I'm able to paint scenery & other stuff like hand-drawn illustrations upon request.


During my career as a portrait & caricature artist in Singapore, I've been featured many times in the local newspapers & magazines such as The Strait Times,The Newpaper,etc. Recently,some of my works even appeared on local Channel-8 TV mandarin drama such as 'Like Father Like Daughter' & so on. In 2005,I was being invited to appear on TV under 'Arts Central' channel for a Christmas programme call 'X'mas Mambo'.


I'll be posting my favourite works as well as events related to it from time to time & please feel free to drop by my blog www.sg-caricature.blogspot.com to view them.


Cheers!
