Morgan Chua

Singaporean born cartoonist Morgan Chua first found fame as a cartoonist in Hong Kong when he joined the Far Eastern Economic Review. His keen wit and observation was translated into well-received single panels of political cartoons. In his career, he has done caricatures of all the newsmakers around the world including Singapore.

Upon his return home, he updated his earlier published work My Singapore. The revised edition was released in 2008 and tells the history of the nation in his own unique way—with barbed perceptiveness, concisely but impactful imagery and a visual eloquence that is unmatched in the region.

Morgan Chua passed away in Tanjung Pinang in Bintan, Indonesia on 23 March 2018.
