About the Author
Morgan Chua was known for his astute and biting political cartoons. Described as “Review’s Unsparing Brushman” by the South China Morning Post and as the “Legendary Cartoonist of Singapore” by Asia Week, Morgan’s drawing were first published by the Pioneer, a magazine published by the Singapore Armed Forces which provides news on army matters relating to Singapore. He worked for the Singapore Herald in 1970 as the editorial artist before moving on to The Asian as and then the Far Eastern Economic Review (FEER) as its first art director at the age of 23.
In 1989, Morgan was in China when the events of Tiananmen Square occurred. Shocked by the events, he drew more than 100 cartoons of the massacre which were later published in his book, Tiananmen in the same year.
In his time, Morgan has illustrated iconic covers for FEER, using leader personalities such as Li Ka-Shing as “Superman Li”, Margaret Thatcher, Prince Sihanouk, Tun Razak, Indira Gandhi and Lee Kuan Yew.
Hard at work right up to the time when he passed on in 2018, Morgan Chua’s works have left a mark and a void on political cartooning in Singapore which would be hard to fill.
