Low Hai Hong was 60 years old when he finally made the trip to Paris. An art journey that took almost forty years to realize.
It was late, but also not late.
He was able to absorb more and faster from the masters he saw in the museums during the trip as he was already highly skilled in his technical abilities by then.
He was able to assimilate what he saw and felt in Paris to create a breakthrough in his paintings because he was ready to reach the next level.
He was able to create many more exciting paintings after this breakthrough, and eventually built an artistic legacy that impressed many.
Life is such. We do not know how it will turn out but we should always stay true to what we want.

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:
If only I had made this trip 30 years ago! Today, I have the spirit but not the energy.
Children, don’t be like your father, going to Paris only at 60 years old!
The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris continues with Sunset in Winter.
He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
- Saint Francis of Assisi
