“This is a first of its kind and a rare opportunity for local and aspiring artists to learn, explore and expose to the works of influential art masters,” Ng Huifong, the founder of Atelier Huifong Ng, said during a press conference on Monday.

The exhibition aims to promote Brunei as an art and culture destination.

Art tours in Malay, English and Mandarin languages and a talk with guests from Italy will also be organised at the exhibition.

“Atelier Huifong Ng, established in 2017, is a centre of Excellence in Fine Art learning for children aged between six and 17, aiming to develop and harness a child’s fine art talent and propel them to be skilful, diligent, confident and creative characteristics that empower early learning and creative expression,” Ng Huifong added.
