Mr Kiasu : Everything Also Act Blur #8
- About the Author
Mr Kiasu is one of Singapore’s most recognisable comic icons in the 90s, bringing a brand of local humor that is greatly identifyable and relatable to Singaporeans everywhere. A caricature of a typical Singaporean who “does not like to lose”, the comic series has sold over 650,000 copies since its debut in 1990, with eight comic volumes and three spin-off titles; and also has a live-action drama series and various merchandise to its franchise.
Relaunched in 2017, Mr Kiasu is now presented in a new environment – a technologically advanced and modern Singapore, to which he applies his own quirky brand of “Kiasu” solutions to everyday situations. — ‘Everything Also Act Blur.’ Mr Kiasu continues to find himself in situations where he loses control; where he faces responsibilities that he could not, would not and should not but did. What else could he do but Act Blur.
Johnny Lau is a Singaporean artist famous for his iconic comic series Mr Kiasu. Since the 1990s, Lau has been appointed creative director or co-producer of a number of projects with various art and design forms, including publishing, TV, interior design, and mentor for youth talents.
