Charity Sale at Sun Ray Cafe by Evacomics

I am holding a charity sale of 7 pieces of artwork at Sun Ray Cafe right now! They are all hand-painted/drawn, not digital, which means they are one of a kind!

*The top right painting is by my friend, Kelly Ho.

It is on-going now and will be there until the pieces are sold.
100% of the proceeds will be donated to either Singapore Cancer Society or A Packet of Rice. Sun Ray Cafe will be donating them on my behalf and I will update with the receipts later.

Background

We got this idea when Kelly, my friend/amateur artist/lawyer, took me to her friend's cafe after we finished painting at an art jamming session. We looked at the blank wall of the cafe and proposed to Dave, one of the co-owners, about the collaboration for a charity sale. So here is an introduction of the artwork that I am putting up. Once artwork is sold I will update the status here along with the chosen beneficiary by the buyer.

Sun Ray Cafe (pet cafe) is located at:
79 Brighton Crescent
Serangoon Gardens
Singapore 559218

Description of the Artwork

1)
"Evacomics in Wonderland"
2014
Acrylic and Marker on Canvas

This artwork was inspired by my dog's name: Kopi and the old name of the cat: Teh. The setting is like a tea party in Alice in Wonderland, but with Singapore-style breakfast: Kaya toast, eggs and coffee. The cast: Eva as Alice, Kopi as Madhatter and Matcha (new name for my cat) as the White Rabbit.

Price: $300 (SOLD on 16th Jun)
Chosen beneficiary: A Packet of Rice

2)
"Clarke Quay"
2003
Watercolour

This is a non-original piece, could not locate information of the original painting. This watercolour piece took me 2 months to complete due to the intricate details.

Price: $300

3)
"Mushroom and Dried Chilli"
2003
Watercolour

This is an early work based on a still-life setting.

Price: $250

4)
"Sunset"
2003
Watercolour

This is a non-original piece, could not locate information of the original painting.

Price: $250

5)
"Kray's Inventory"
2003
Watercolour

I used to buy a lot of books and had to sell them in order to make space for more. So I created an online shop called "Kray's Inventory" to list them all. The painting within the painting is my self portrait and the person on the desk is me, who transformed into a wizard working at night to key in all the book information to sell. The style was heavily influenced by Lord of the Rings and illustrations by Jimmy, a renown Taiwanese illustrator.

Price: $700 (SOLD on 15th Jun)
Chosen beneficiary: A Packet of Rice

6)
"The Great Escape"
2004
Graphite Pencil and Marker

The protagonist works on her magic together with a creature from the underground ruins to escape from the monster. This artwork was inspired by anime series: Nadia, the Secret of Blue Water.

Price: $800 (SOLD on 16th Jun)
Chosen beneficiary: Singapore Cancer Society (with cheque)

7)
"Love at First Sight"
2004
Watercolour on Canvas

The girl dropped her fan accidently into the pond and was picked up by a boy who happened to pass by.

Price: $80 (SOLD)
Chosen beneficiary: Singapore Cancer Society (with cheque)


The Cafe Menu

While you're at the cafe, don't forget to order a cup of coffee from their barista and owner: Dave. Their cappuccino is fantastic :)


My favourite dish is the Yorkshire Pork.

Next is Duck Confit.

This is me and Dave, the co-owner of the pet cafe.

So please help to support our project by buying a painting :)
Alternatively you can donate any amount directly to charity organisations here: https://www.sggives.org

Thank you very much!
