Summary

DISCOVER THE WONDERS OF SOUTHEAST ASIA THROUGH ART

Exploring Southeast Asia with Liu Kang is an exploration of a segment of Singapore’s history through Liu Kang’s seminal work, Life By The River. The story takes readers through a slice of Liu Kang’s life in Singapore before the founding of the Nanyang style, an art movement that has become embedded in the art history of Singapore. Readers will see how Liu Kang struggled to ?nd artistic inspiration in Malaya and how a trip to Bali changed his mind and perception of home. Weaved into the story is that of Singapore seen through the lens of the artist. Children will learn about life in pre-independence Singapore, its landscape, and people.
