The Explorer Project

Learn more about the inspiration behind the comic with Annuendo, the illustrator of this enchanting comic.

Follow Shaun, a black-naped oriole, in this exhilarating adventure across our sunny island and find out more about the strange creature he meets along the way. Shaun helps out his newfound friend in need as they travel across Singapore and beyond!

This new intergalactic comic by Singapore Art Museum was inspired by the relocation of The Explorer, a sculpture by Cultural Medallion recipient Ng Eng Teng.
