Pulau Ubin: The Last Frontier
- About the Author
The tiny island of Pulau Ubin, located off the northeast coast of mainland Singapore, is one of the last rural areas in Singapore still surviving. This charming collection of pen-and-ink sketches by Francis Theo takes you on an intimate tour of its varied wonders. Nature, simplicity, slowness – qualities increasingly rare in urbanised modern Singapore – are captured here in loving detail.
With more than 50 original illustrations drawn on location, this book is a remarkable record of a truly unique place and way of life.
Francis Theo worked as a store visual merchandiser and fit-out operations manager for more than 30 years. Since retiring, he has been a freelance illustrator, florist and art educator. Nicknamed "Sketch Machine" by fellow artists of Urban Sketchers Singapore because of his quick sketching skills and passion for architecture, Francis is representing Singapore at the 2016 International Urban Sketchers Symposium in Manchester, UK.
