Simon Ng was born in 1974; he lives and work in Singapore. Influenced by European existentialist painters, Simon creates works of ‘mis-en-scéne’ that resist interpretations, each narrative plays out like incomplete sentences, providing little references to prior events or what may follow. In most of his works, the fixed gaze of an animal became the dominating element of the visual composition. It seems to acknowledge the presence of the viewer and offers something both disturbing and familiar, something about the instinctive nature of animals.

Initially trained in graphic design, Simon Ng turned to painting at the age of 30. He received a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts with First Class Honors from Open University, U.K. with Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore in 2009. He was a recipient of the Winston Oh's Travel Award in 2008 and the Winston Oh’s Postgraduate Fine Art Research Fund in 2012. Works by the artist is privately collected in Stockholm, Oslo and Singapore. He is currently a part-time lecturer at Lasalle College of the Arts in Singapore.
