NAFA Artist-in-residence

fahcheong was NAFA Artist-in-residence in August 2018. During that time, he conducted a stone-carving class for the Nanyang Academy art students at the Bencoolen campus. For many students, it was their first time carving stone, and so the softer travertine was used.

Using his work Terribile Quotidian as an example, fahcheong gave the students some food for thought. How do you come up with an idea for a sculpture?

Students submitted their design ideas and these were critiqued. Then they learned to translate their designs into 3D reality through carving with hammer and chisel and grinding the stone.

And finally there was an exhibition of all their efforts.
