Raymond Lau Poo Seng 刘富生

Raymond Lau Poo Seng's path to success as an artist has not been easy. Afflicted with Tourette Syndrome since the age of 7, Raymond has lived with this neurological disorder for much of his life, and is given to sudden, involuntary movements or utterances. Born under humble family circumstances, Raymond did not fare well in the competitive Singapore school system, except in art and music.

 

Raymond then went on to complete his Bachelor degree in Fine Arts in 1995 from the University of Tasmania. Recognition for the mastery of his young talent culminated in the Young Artist Award for 2001, bestowed by the National Arts Council of Singapore. His life should serve as an inspiration to those born with disabilities, but beyond that, his paintings should continue to speak as a Singaporean soul to illuminate the human condition.

刘富生的艺术家之路并不平坦。7岁起,因患有罕见的神经性疾病妥瑞综合症,使他的生活备受折磨。尽管他在竞争激烈的新加坡教育系统中表现不佳,但艺术和音乐的成绩不俗。

 

1995年,他在塔斯马尼亚大学完成了美术学士学位。他荣获新加坡国家艺术委员会颁发的2001年青年艺术家奖,其创作才华备受认可。他让自己的生命焕发出了新的光彩,并成为天生残疾的人之典范。他坚持透过手中的画笔来勾勒出新加坡整体社会的风貌。
