The exhibition runs to Sunday 19th October 2008.



Artist's Statement:

This latest show is inspired by my recent encounter with the beautiful children I met and who were introduced to me by that wonderful organization Make-A-Wish.

Children should not need to have to make a wish. In an ideal world, life should be perfect for children, where life is filled with only good and wonderful things and each day is anchored by love, security and warmth. I know that isn't the case and that's why we need organizations like Make-A-Wish where children contract incurable diseases and life becomes tinged and shadowed with uncertainty.

The works as a whole deal with children, each in its own way, depicting and/or suggesting either longings, needs, hopes, fears and expectations that surround their world. I have deliberately tried to keep the drawings cheerful but at the same time, kept the realities of their existence in the drawings.

The drawings are in aid of each and every child that Make-A-Wish wants to help. I stand in awe of their goal and humbled by their tremendous dedication to date.


About the artist:

Koh Tien Gui is a lawyer, entrepreneur and self-taught artist who has charmed his audiences in both Geneva and Singapore with naïve, nostalgic images of bygone days and wistful situations. Wish a Wish will be his 8th solo exhibition. The artist’s proceeds from the show will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore.


About the charity:

Make-A-Wish Foundation® Singapore has one simple mission - to create hope and happiness by granting the heartfelt wishes of children who have a life-threatening illness.

Our aim goes beyond the mere delivery of the child’s wish. Instead, we hope to create an unforgettable and meaningful experience when we make these wishes come true. We know that such memories are a source of joy, encouragement, hope and even strength to these children in their fight to overcome their illnesses.

Since we began in 2003 we have granted over 352 magical wishes. With an average of 8 new referrals each month we are constantly seeking to raise more funds so that we can meet our goal of reaching every medically eligible child in Singapore.
