About the Artist – Huifong Ng (born 1981)

Born in Kuala Belait, Brunei, Huifong Ng is third generation Brunei-Chinese.

Huifong is an intuitive portraitist. Her works are inspired by stories from the heart. As deep emotions are felt in the eyes of her portraits, she is also known as “The Soul Artist”.

Huifong traveled to the United States of America and France to learn from famous art masters. Her passion in studying facial features later took her to learning sculpting in Italy.

An avid solo traveler, Huifong finds joy in painting the people she meets during her travels and in rekindling their stories into her art pieces. Huifong speaks English, Malay, Mandarin, French and Italian, as well as Chinese dialects such as Hokkien and Cantonese. Her search for inspirations has taken her to Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, China, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Italy, United States of America and Australia.

In 2014, Huifong held her first solo exhibition in Singapore. Two of her exhibited works, the portraits of Singapore’s Founding Father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, received enormous attention from both Singapore media and public. The following year, in 2015, Huifong gave back to society by donating the two portraits of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew to two charitable organizations in Singapore.

Despite of her busy schedule, Huifong has also been actively participating in group exhibitions and international art expos in Brunei, Italy and China to connect with art lovers and artists alike.

Huifong’s esteemed clientele includes businessmen, government bodies and art collectors. In 2015, Huifong was commissioned by her client to paint the Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong. Huifong presented the painting to PM Lee in person in a public event. In 2016, Huifong was commissioned by a charitable organization to paint the portraits of Mr. Tony Tan, President of Singapore and his wife, Mary Tan. The painting was presented to the President in a public event.

Since 2014, Huifong has been featured and mentioned by media and press from Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia and other countries for over 40 times.

At the end of 2015, Huifong was invited by Brunei state-run television service, Radio Televisyen Brunei (RTB) as a representative from Brunei to speak in the ASEAN project titled “VOICE OF ASEAN: Beyond Boundaries” on air. The recording was broadcasted in all ASEAN countries in 2016.

In 2016, Huifong was again invited by RTB to their TV show to share about her art career and journey. The same year, RTB produced a documentary on Huifong titled “Huifong dan Lukisan Potretnya” (Huifong and Her Portrait Paintings). The documentary was broadcasted nationwide.

In 2015, Huifong received a special award from Biennale of Umbria, Italy. The following year, she received another award from International Colosseo Prize, also from Italy.

During her free time, Huifong likes to write proses and poems, as well as to translate articles and songs.
