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
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.
