2009-2019: From Social Realism to Speculative Fiction and Silkpunk – 10 Years of Comics Art is a solo exhibition by award-winning comic artist Koh Hong Teng. The exhibition marks a 10-year milestone in Koh’s journey as a full-time comic artist and features original art pages from well-known titles that have offered glimpses into social realities, hawker traditions, architecture and many aspects of Singapore to the world. It also showcases some of the original artwork on fantasy and sword-fighting novels inspired by favourite stories from his youth.
At this exhibition, Koh offers a sneak preview of his latest work, The Assassins Book One: Cao Mo done in collaboration with writer S Mickey Lin. This latest graphic novel is the first in a series of five based on the Biographies of Assassins featured in the Records of the Grand Historian written by China’s greatest historian, Sima Qian. A gripping tale that is part fantastical and part historical, the story visually unfolds in one epic continuous panel in Koh’s most ambitious project to date.
