Dai Ying Lang (also known as Tai In Lang), a key figure in the early Chinese cartoon movement in Singapore, was a left-wing artist and intellectual who was active in multiple political scenes, as well as art and literary fields from the 1920s to 1940s in Malaya, Singapore and China.
However, historical records of his presence in these socio-cultural zones remain fragmented and under-researched; furthermore, little is known of his life spent in post-1949 China. This talk resurfaces existing research on this Malayan-born artist and shares new information about the artist’s life and career after 1949.
