Artist Idris Ali's 'live' portraits make special momentos and keepsakes and will bring a smile on anyone's face. Get your portrait or your loved ones drawn, come as a couple, group or with the whole family, and enjoy this unique experience!

Idris Ali (read his full bio here) is a prominent artist known for his landscape paintings in watercolor, and true to life sketches in graphite pencil, and pen and ink. A self-taught artist, his talents were sought after by ad agencies, where he pursued a career as a viualiser for 20 years. He continued painting throughout his career in advertising as well as a part-time teacher at APAD (Association of Artists of Various Resources).

He has been commissioned for landscape paintings as well as portraits for former President of Singapore, Mr Wee Kim Wee and the first lady. His paintings can also be found in the collections of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts (now Ministry of Communications and Information) and many private individuals.
