An iconic cartoon character created by renowned artist and scholar Huang Yao in the 1930s, Niubizi was known throughout China, Malaya and Singapore as a vehicle for his creator’s satirical and humorous portrayals of social and political issues. The shifting roles of Niubizi, from comedian, political commentator, patriotic soldier to wanderer, reflect the changing historical and cultural landscapes of the times.
In this public lecture, Mr Chua Soo Teng, Head of Archive of Huang Yao Foundation will share more about Huang Yao’s depictions of Niubizi in the Republican period and how they reflect the characteristics of the era.
