The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is a biography showcasing the life and work of a pioneering but largely forgotten comic artist in Singapore. With a career spanning more than five decades, from pre-independence Singapore through its three Prime Ministers, Chan's work reflects the country's changing political and economic environment.

Containing Chan's original illustrations, paintings and sketches, this is a groundbreaking work and labour of love aimed at recapturing the portrait of an artist, whose deep passion for comics and country is given a fitting tribute by Eisner-nominated comic artist Sonny Liew.
