Eugene Soh, Programmer and Accidental Artist

Born in 1987, Eugene is a computer programming genius who ‘accidentally’ became an artist when his photographic piece, contextualizing Da Vinci’s Last Supper in a local hawker centre setting, surfaced on social media in 2012. That discovery, with its tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary life in Singapore, catapulted him into the art world. He has since been a full-time artist who codes really well. Eugene’s work is inherently humanistic, and his empathy for the common man, his challenges and foibles, resonates with his audience. Eugene’s parodies of living conditions in Singapore are both a tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary life and a raw exposé of the struggles facing people of all ages in the Lion city.
