Published on Feb 4, 2013 2:51 PM

The artistic legacy of the late pioneer artist Cheong Soo Pieng lives on in a new exhibition at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Nafa).

A highlight of the show is the 86 sketches owned by private collectors that are on display, many for the first time in public.

The exhibition also features some 50 paintings and mixed media works, including a series of never-before-seen blue abstract paintings.

The works span four decades of Cheong's artistic career, from 1943 to 1983, when he died of heart failure at 66.
