Malaysian artist Vince Low, who is holding his first solo exhibition in Singapore, creates portraits entirely through scribbles.

Simply Scribbly, which is on at TCC - The Connoisseur Concerto in Circular Road, features 24 of his works.

"People usually scribble when they are bored or brainstorming," says the 37-year-old bachelor. He decided to incorporate them into his drawings to show that even seemingly useless doodles can be turned into something great.

His portraits feature celebrities such as pop star Madonna, Bahamian-born boxer Kimbo Slice as well as scientist Albert Einstein, whom some people believe was dyslexic.
