ABOUT AIKBENG CHIA

AikBeng Chia (b.1968) is an Illustrator and designer. His photographic work is driven by a musing based on the bonds of human social behavior in public spaces, linked together by multi-centric municipalities. Author of Tonight the Streets are Ours (2013), a monograph on Singapore’s Little India district after dusk, SingKarPor (2015) and self published zines (2010 - ongoing), AikBeng’s vivid and gritty images of moments and people, in Singapore and various cities across the world, have garnered him a huge following on Instagram. He was a contributor to the Everyday Asia Instagram in 2014, and helmed the UK Guardian newspaper’s Travel Instagram account for a three-day special feature on Singapore in 2015. AikBeng has exhibited internationally and his works are in the collection of institutions and private collectors. www.aikbengchia.com
