The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye

Written and Illustrated by Sonny Liew

The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is a biography showcasing the life and work of Chan Hock Chye, a pioneering but largely forgotten comics artist in Singapore. With a career spanning more than five decades, from pre-independent Singapore through its three Prime Ministers, Chan’s work reflects the changing political and economic environment in Singapore.
Containing Chan’s original illustrations, paintings and sketches, this is a groundbreaking work and labour of love aimed at recapturing the portrait of an artist, whose deep passion for comics and country is given a fitting tribute by award-winning comics artist Sonny Liew.

Woods in the Books recommendation:
Winner of the Singapore Literature Prize 2016 as well as 3 Eisner Awards, this book clearly showcases Sonny Liew’s experience and breadth of talent as a cartoonist and comic book artist. Not merely a history of Singapore, but of the history of the comic book with great attention to detail for both its subjects.
