Hey guys, I’m back from my trip to Boston and Bangkok! A few exciting things happened while I was away – making me regret I left Singapore… but oh well.
1. The Last Kopitiam at the Affordable Art Fair 2013
2. DUDE.SG in Female Magazine, December Issue
Along with Dawn Ng and Benjamin Hampe! Yea, go grab a copy of this month’s issue of Female! Thank you Female!
3. Little India Riot
Although regretful, this must have been the biggest news for Singapore all year! I was observing the not-as-exciting protests in Bangkok while all that was happening back home.
Happy holidays everyone!
Eugene Soh’s Honorable Mention Speech at 2nd France + Singapore Photographic Arts Award 2013
So I was awarded with an Honorable Mention at the 2nd France + Singapore Photographic Arts Awards 2013! Surprised, I stumbled up and gave a “speech”. My baby kittens helped me to film. Thank you Alliance française de Singapour!
Me with Emmanuel Laine and Susie Lingham.

My first solo show coming up guys!
Venue: OCBC Centre Branch, 65 Chulia Street, Singapore 049513
Dates: 12th – 31st August 2013
OCBC Arts Card presents a collection of photographic and video works from emerging Singaporean artist Eugene Soh. In his signature irreverent and humorous style, Soh confronts pertinent social and cultural issues with disregard for convention.
Included in this presentation is The Overview, an interactive installation based on Soh’s own “Eugene’s Cave” theory. The installation delivers an “out-of-body” experience that bids the participant re-think his or her own sense of perspective and reality.
Also on display will be the artist’s seminal parodic works, The Last Kopitiam and Venus and Grace. Firm favourites with the public, these works have garnered the 2012 Crowbar Award and 2013 Sony World Photography finalist award respectively.
Organised by Chan Hampe Galleries and supported by Asian Art Options.

The Collected: portraits of collectors aligned and overlaid into one — a collection of collectors.
The Collected by DUDE.SG is a project where the artist, Eugene Soh, photographs and collects the portraits of international collectors who have converged here for Singapore Art Stage 2013.
Below are a few images that were generated during the creation of the final piece above.
The final piece will be an acrylic sculpture. Here is a 3D diagram.
