Drawing is in his blood
Adam and Chirs are self-taught artist, practicing their art since 7 years old,Both are highly successful first generation entrepreneur from Singapore. Adam founded and FACE OF MAN, a leading chain of ‘men’s only’ skincare salons. He operated with his twin brother for over 20 years. His pursuit of keeping men looking good and youthful is yet another art form for him.
Adam learnt in his entrepreneurial journey that reliability, affordability and excellent customer service are timeless values that are bound to make any venture successful. Needless to say, he brings the same approach to Caricaturist. With his twin brother and a team of highly experienced caricaturists, he delivers his art in an engaging and entertaining manner.
Adam and Chris were born in a family with modest means. However, he and his four brothers are all endowed with a wealth of artistic talent. As children, both only hobby was their pen and back pages of used sketch pads. They started drawing at the age of 6 to amuse themselves. At the age of 13, they were quite accomplished artists and began designing posters and comic strips for their schools and educational centers. Along the way, both won many accolades and awards in his school which encouraged and motivated them to draw more.
Both could not keep their pencil and sketch pad away even during their national service. Adam was a military policeman as well as a pilot trainee! His seniors noticed his talent and assigned him the responsibility to draw charts, design decorative backdrops and even produce a three episodes comic series with characters fashioned on his camp mates. This had everyone in splits and kept the crew and night guards tickled and awake!
Chris was assigned to Civil Defence and designed training manuals and poster for the organisation beacuse pictures speaks a thousand words than text.
In spite of achieving recognition as an artist, both Chris and Adam continue to read comics and watch movies with the curiosity of a child. They enjoy all genres as they help them understand various filming techniques, compelling storytelling tactics and creative animation skills. This study inspires them to excel in his own comics and movie making projects. Adam produces videos purely out of passion to explore artistic ideas in otherwise boring weddings and corporate events for MNC’s and SME’s. A restless creative soul, Adam also studied 2D and 3D animation, visual effects, sculpting and story-boarding as well as HD video production. He received the Best Video Clip award in STOMP in 2008 and was widely acclaimed on national TV and online news portals. With his engineering, artistic, entertaining and corporate budgeting experience, he even created a profitable industry standard haunted house for only $1700 with multimedia, visual effects, mood lighting and affordable props such as discarded old furniture.
Adam learnt and mastered the Japanese language and joined Singapore Airlines as the first official Japanese speaking cabin crew in 1993 with his twin brother. Noticing their talent for caricatures and cartoons, SIA assigned major design projects to the brothers that required rendering illustrations for their various training manuals and training videos for the crew.
