SketchingHan Sai Por

Han Sai Por (Chinese: 韩少芙; pinyin: Hán Shàofú;[1] born 19 July 1943) is a Singaporean sculptor. A graduate of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), East Ham College of Art, Wolverhampton College of Art (now the School of Art and Design of the University of Wolverhampton) and Lincoln University, New Zealand, she worked as a teacher and later as a part-time lecturer at NAFA, the LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts, and the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, before becoming a full-time artist in 1997.

At the sculpting symposium 2014, I happened to sketch Han Sai Por while she was at work on her sculpture using trees trunks and branches. It was a giant piece and it required her to use a ladder to work on it.
