Ben Puah

19th September 1976

Ben Puah is an exciting figure in a new breed of contemporary Asian artists.

Born in Singapore in 1976, Ben studied at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and LASALLE College of the Arts. He received his BFA with Distinction from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2000. He is also the recipient for President’s Young Talents(Singapore) in 2001.

Art is very important to Ben because it is a way of expressing oneself and an abstraction of how he feels about life. His works are like in the state of phantasmagoria where there is a mix of real and imagined elements. 

Ben had participated in more than 100 exhibitions. He exhibited his works in Singapore, Iran, Australia, Germany, Japan, USA, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, London, Malaysia, China and Phillippines. His artworks are in the permanent collections of Singapore Art Museum, National Institute of Education Singapore, Earl Lu Gallery and Hanoi Contemporary Art Center and in private collections at both local and international locations.
