~ A Lifelong Passion for his Craft and his teaching

Japan Creative Centre is proud to present an exhibition and artist talk by Mr Iskandar Jalil, a highly-regarded local ceramist who uses fine clay to develop bowls and pots into art works, integrating Japanese and Islamic styles. He was awarded two Colombo Plan scholarships, to study textiles in India (1962) and ceramic engineering in Japan (1972), which started him on the road to a highly successful career as a potter. He also received the Cultural Medallion for Visual Arts (1988) and the National Day Award – The Public Service Star (BBM) Award (2012).

Mr Iskandar Jalil's work is featured in many international public and private collections, such as those by the National Museum of Sweden, Sultan of Brunei, former American President George Bush, and the Governor of Hong Kong. His work is also included in several collections in Singapore, including those by Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew, National Museum of Singapore, several banks, statutory boards and educational organisations. Some of his larger works can be seen in public places like the SMRT wall mural in Tanjong Pagar Station, and the wall mural in Changi Airport Terminal Two.


*The exhibition features Mr. Iskandar Jalil’s latest works created specifically for the event. Works of his current and former students will also be displayed.
