Low Hai Hong did not drink coffee.  


But he loved observing the Parisians enjoying their coffee, croissants and chatter, particularly in the outdoor section of the cafes.


These cafe scenes were always animated and lively, full of cheer and spirits.  


He enjoyed this people watching when he was in Paris, and painted several of such "portraits" of strangers.

The Letter Home 


From all his overseas travels throughout the years, Low Hai Hong wrote only one letter home.  This was the letter from Paris.  


It was a letter for his family, as much as a letter for himself.  Been in Paris brought about so many feelings and thoughts that he had to write them down, and share with his closest. 


He was overwhelmed with emotions, as he was finally able to realize his dream of painting in Paris.  


Original letter written in Chinese:



Translated in English:

Please forget the wild and unpredictable old me.  This oppressed soul has been liberated.



The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris continues with Montmartre before Dusk


The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel - Piet Mondrian
