Low Hai Hong 's five months immersive art experience in Paris was possible due to Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA)'s residency program.  

 

It was everything he could ask for: a studio to sleep and paint, unlimited and priority access to the art museums, a place in the city centre where he could explore easily. 

  

Several of his artist friends from NAFA also took up the residency at different periods throughout the years.  Everyone had a different experience in Paris and created different artworks from their stay.

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:

你们将看到熟悉但绝不是原形的我,一个真正为艺术疯狂的画家将重新在你们面前出现。

 不要为我而忧虑,不要为我而苦恼,只因在精神上的我以得到新生!

 

Translated in English:

You will soon see a familiar but new me, a real artist, one who is madly passionate about his art!

 So do not worry about me, because I am reborn spiritually!

 

The letter from the Singapore artist in Paris continues with Boats by the Canal St Martin.
