Meei Ling Ng
Mission driven, Singapore-born artist, Meei Ling Ng is a multi-media installation artist, graphic designer, and urban farmer. For the past several years her art installations have focused on raising public awareness on urban farming, sustainable living, and ways to include the natural world in our lives. Interacting with and engaging the surrounding community has been an important component to these projects. As an artist and urban farmer, sharing her knowledge of farming and the natural world has been part of her artistic approach. She believes that making social connections and forming relationships that inform and shape the final work. Most of her art installations are functional art integrated into existing environments or working facilities such as urban farms. Besides painting, Meei Ling mainly uses found, recycled, and reclaimed materials to create her projects. She also experiments with a variety of mediums such as lighting and video, and has lately been incorporating them into her sculptures and installations. Her artwork often remains on-site permanently to be used by the collaborators or to benefit the community in some way.
