National Arts Council (NAC) is withdrawing its earlier approved $8,000 publication grant to Malaysia-born award-winning comics artist, Sonny Liew due the “sensitive content” depicted in his 324-page comic book, “The Art Of Charlie Chan Hock Chye”.
The book uses different forms of comic illustration to depict the life of a Singaporean artist which spans across 60-odd years of Singapore history.
As part of celebrating 50 years of close and cordial bilateral diplomatic relations, Singapore is the Guest of Honour Country at the upcoming New Delhi World Book Fair to be held from 14-22 February 2015 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, India.

The delegation will arrive in Delhi in two waves: publishers on 11 February, and authors and illustrators on 13 February.
