Description: One of Singapore’s preeminent contemporary artists, Jimmy Ong has been noted for his large- scale, figurative charcoal works on paper since his first solo exhibitions in the 1980s. Part of his body of work — like this particular set — explores sexual identity, human relation and gender roles. Currently working from his studios in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and the USA, Jimmy has exhibited extensively in Singapore, and internationally in New York, Hong Kong and Sri Lanka, amongst other cities. Jimmy has exhibited in numerous local and international exhibitions including Gallery 456 in New York, USA, National Art Gallery Malaysia, Newhouse Center of Contemporary Art, Staten Island, New York, USA, FOST Gallery Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore, Plum Blossoms Gallery in Hong Kong and New York, USA, Lunguganga, Bentota, Sri Lanka and Tyler Rollins Fine Art, New York, USA.
