OH KHANG LARK
Oh Khang Lark was born in 1945, in the town of Chaozhou, China, and arrived in Singapore in 1953. He studied at Duman Government High School and was greatly influenced by the principal, Mr. Chen Renhao, who was a reputable Chinese Calligrapher. In 1962, Mr. Oh won the first prize in the "All High School Chinese Calligraphy Competition". Following that, he studied Chinese Calligraphy and Seal engraving under Mr. Shi Xiang Tuo, a renowned master in Chinese pictogram calligraphy and petroglyphs.
Mr. Oh was an enthusiastic student in the pursuit of this interest. In 1967, he and five other friends formed the Molan Art Association to promote the traditional Chinese art forms in Singapore. Due to the sudden onset of an eye ailment, he ceased his beloved art pursuit and focused on his design lecturing career.
He resumed his presence in the art scene after his retirement in 2015. Regardless of his vexing eye problems, he painstakingly works on refine artwork like seal engravings, miniature calligraphy based on long Buddhist scriptures.
