Low Hai Hong was in Paris from August to December 2001.
He was excited to experience autumn and winter in Paris, where the light from the sun was different from Singapore, which was sunny throughout the year.
It was not just the light that was different. He felt different too, with this change in weather, the temperature, the air.
These differences externally and internally due to the seasons could be clearly seen from his paintings. His paintings in Paris had a distinct atmosphere, ambience and feel, different from those he painted of Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

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:
May you be happy, may you be blessed with true happiness.
Low Hai Hong
7 August 2001, Night
The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris starts with A Singapore Artist in Paris.
