Naturally Alvin

Our final year student, Alvin Mark Tan, is holding second his solo Art Exhibition in Singapore. Titled, Natural Realism (part one), Alvin is showcasing his work from the Angel Academy, which traces the process from his first Bargue copy to the 1st colour cast painting. His aim is to introduce and educate the public about Natural Realism.

Alvin spent this past summer urban-sketching the city of Florence and sold many of his ink and gouache sketches in a personal kick-starter. This was to raise money for his journey back to Singapore to hold the exhibition, which runs from Dec 17 to Dec 21. He is also launching his second sketchbook journal on Dec 19 called Ciao Firenze!, to raise funds for the rest of his final year at the Angel Academy.

We wish him all the best in the exhibition and book sales!
