special artists

Benjamin Koh and Christian Tan are two talented artists living in a world where words are hard to verbalise and actions often misunderstood. Where Autism is hard to live with, Art provides an outlet of expression. 

Christian Tan is 26 years old and he wants to be an artist. 

Benjamin Koh turns 34 this year and lives in his own world. He loves to paint.

About us

This is about partnerships, about collaborations, about sharing a canvas. While the special artists are talented, they need help to showcase their abilities and assistance to represent them professionally. At this point in time, they also require some form of guidance to improve their skill sets.

The Art Industry is a very competitive one and it can be daunting, especially for young and inexperienced artists. Even more so, for differently abled ones. More often than not, it seems like an Everest task to get one's voice heard. It is a hard fact that it has become increasingly difficult to even have a mere presence felt in the market place.

We started a mentor/ mentee program and under this arrangement, the boys are guided in their painting process, their works are then packaged onto products and  retailed at outlets. Together, as a team, we also pitch to companies to secure joint commission orders. 

The efforts are aimed at providing a platform for the works to be showcased, appreciated and valued. It will be a bonus if  some form of financial stability can be achieved in the process.  The ultimate goal in this journey is for both artists to take off on their own, based on their own merit with little or minimal assistance from the mentors.

the mentees

Two boys, one 34 and the other 26, both on the Autism Spectrum.  One with medium functioning abilities, the other, very low functioning. One commonality, both love working with colors. 

the mentors 

Two friends from JC, met after many years, bonded by a common interest in art, each with their own careers as artists, decided to embark on this journey to mentor the boys.
