Leo Hee Tong is a highly accomplished second generation artist in Singapore, graduated from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1960 and received a scholarship from The People's Association in 1973 to further studies at Ashiya Art College, Japan. One of the most notable achievements is being awarded 9 Distinction awards for UOB Painting of the Year competition, as well as multiple Tan Tsze Chor Awards.

The exhibition takes visitors through a visual journey of the celebrated second-generation artist’s life, from his family roots and childhood, to his formative years and into the signature expression that has inducted his art into public and private collections such as the Singapore Art Museum and the Istana.

36 works will be on display featuring Leo's most prominent painting series. Most of the artwork are for sale, ranging from $8,000 to $36,000, with some not-for-sale pieces from Leo's personal collection as well.
● Leo’s iconic The Harmony Pigeon series that harks back to the artist’s childhood bird-rearing kampung days,
● the Snowing in Japan series which chronicles scenes from his student days in Japan,
● the Childhood Dreams collection that explores Leo’s experiences as a little boy,
● the signature Windows, Doors and Walls series which uses living spaces as expressions of culture and lifestyle, and
● a collection of Balinese Style artwork, including Leo’s Old Man and the Sea that depict Leo’s Indonesian family roots through
landscapes and slices of life in rural Indonesia.

The Art Fellas represent and promote talented artists, as well as host art events regularly to engage and educate the general public about the local art scene. It is the brainchild of Cruz Phua and Daniel Fong, two passionate Singaporean art entrepreneurs and collectors with a strong ambition to create an integrated, sustainable arts ecosystem.
