Han Sai Por



    Artist Bio

    (b. 1943, Singapore) 

    Han Sai Por is a renowned Singaporean artist known for her stone sculptures that draw from natural, organic forms, with motifs ranging from plants, seeds to fruits. Her sculptural forms are distinct for their elegance and masterful symmetry, confronting viewers with a preternatural sense of balance. Holding a background in fine arts and landscape architecture, she is particularly concerned with the rapidly changing landscape of Singapore, which often neglects concern for flora, fauna, heritage or preservation. Apart from stone, she has also worked with glass, metals, paper and ice, merging her profound understanding of the shapes of nature with the strengths and textures of her materials.

    Han’s works have been exhibited and collected by several international institutions, public spaces and private collections, such as the Singapore Art Museum, National Museum of China, Beijing, Australia Parliament, Chancery of the Permanent Mission of Singapore to the United Nations, New York, Singapore Embassy, Washington DC, Istana Singapore, and Changi Airport Terminal 3.
