Born in 1939 in then-Malaya, de Souza grew up in a period of turbulence, where he spent his childhood in Singapore under colonial British rule and the Japanese occupation before moving to New South Wales, Australia. He briefly studied to be a Redemptorist missionary priest and went on to study art at Perth Technical College. Through the 1960s and 70s, he toured the world widely as a musician, performed alongside pop music icons such as the Bee Gees, before transitioning into a full-time artist in 1980.
The exhibition Clear Light marks the artist’s homecoming debut in Singapore and will run from 10 October 2019 to 8 December 2019.
