The Art of Charlie Chan is Out!


The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye from Pantheon Books

The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye from Pantheon Books is out this week!

It was one of Publishers Weekly’s Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2016, who say that the book is a “stunning tour de force masterpiece of imagined and real history” and that “this multilayered book is a masterpiece“.

The Beat meanwhile calls it the “first superlative graphic novel… easily the first comics masterwork of 2016

Do pick up a copy at your favourite bookstore or online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indie BoundPowell’s or Books-a-Million 🙂

Riotously funny, heartbreakingly beautiful, fizzing with provocative ideas… breathes life and intimacy into the multi-layered history of Malaysia and Singapore. Sonny Liew has produced a true masterpiece. ”

Loti Gone Case in Wonderland

Venue: Transaction Pavilion, Campus Green, Singapore Management University (Capacity: 80)

“Whether set in 18th-century England and modern-day void decks in Singapore, Troy Chin, Sonny Liew and Dave Chua have no doubt created riveting narratives for their readers. These writers and illustrators, among Singapore’s best known, engage in a heart-to-heart chat about the ideas behind their works, and how words and illustrations complement each other.”

Lucky Plazas

Will be having an art exhibition at Mulan Gallery from 5 Sept to 25 Sept 2009. Its located at Tanglin Shopping Centre; for directions go here. According to their press release…

“‘Lucky Plazas’, a two‐man show at Mulan Gallery, presents the works of noted comic illustrators and artists Sonny Liew and Koh Hong Teng, in a reflective mood, exploring aspects of their homeland, Singapore. While offering narratives that grapple with Singaporean issues that are both subtle and deep, both artists also present engaging visuals that proliferate with minute observations.”
There’s also a Singapore Art Gallery Guide review here, somewhere down the middle :p
