About the artist: Johan Rudolf Bonnet (30 March 1895, Amsterdam – 18 April 1978, Laren) was a Dutch artist who lived much of his life in the town of Ubud on Bali, Indonesia. He was born into a Dutch Huguenot-descended family who had been bakers for many generations. He attended the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. He arrived in Bali in 1929 where he met the German artist Walter Spies and the Dutch musicologist Jaap Kunst. With Kunst, he made a trip to Nias, returning to Bali in 1930. He was invited to live in Ubud in by Cokorda Gde Raka Sukawati. Between 1929 and 1940 Bonnet stayed in Ubud. When Spies moved to Campuhan, Bonnet took over Spies' water palace in Ubud and set up his studio. He became involved in community issues including healthcare and education. He was also very involved in the Pita Maha movement, which encouraged local artists to raise their artistic standards. After the Japanese arrived in Bali, Bonnet remained free until 1942 when he was ordered to be sent to Sulawesi. He spent the remainder of World War II in internment camps in Pare-Pare, Bolong and Makassar. In 1947 Bonnet returned to Bali where he built his house and studio in Campuan. Despite the deterioration in the relationship between The Republic of Indonesia and the Netherlands, Bonnet was able to stay due to his relationship with President Sukarno who had collected 14 of his works. He was expelled from Indonesia in1957 after he refused to finish a portrait of President Sukarno; he was able to return 15 years later. Rudolf Bonnet died in Laren, Holland on April 18, 1978 after a long illness. His body was cremated, and the ashes were brought to Bali where they were burnt together in a great cremation ceremony with his friend Cokorda Gde Agung Sukawati.

Biz Innovator - Joseph Ong


Founder and Managing Director, 1-Group (One Rochester Group)

Writer, r-Entrepreneurship

 Joseph Ong

You can purchase Joseph Ong's book here:



Joseph Ong is a graduate of Nanyang Technological University (B. Acc.) and University of Manchester (MBA, First Class Distinction). Before his foray into the world of lifestyle and F&B, Ong began his career in finance 20 years ago in Ernst and Young, KPMG and Arthur Andersen. This culminated in his tenure at Symantec from 2004, where he became the youngest Vice President in 2013 responsible for the company’s Channels and Business Development in Asia Pacific and Japan.


It was while he was still in Symantec that he completed his MBA, envisioned and put into action his MBA project – One Rochester Group – an F&B enterprise based on the genesis of his groundbreaking concept “remote-Entrepreneurship.” On completion of his MBA, he obtained a rare overall distinction for his course.


He began writing his book, remote-Entrepreneurship in September 2014, to showcase the new and ground-breaking entrepreneurial outlook that developed as his company grew.


“Through my own experience of setting up the One Rochester Group, I wanted to demonstrate that a person like me, with no real working knowledge or background of the industry, could achieve success in the business through proper management and planning,” said Ong. “To begin with, my passion was never about food, it was all about people and strategy. The One Rochester Group is a living case study of why r-entrepreneurship and c-leadership works.”


Today, the 1-Group (previous branding known as One Rochester Group) is one of Singapore’s largest lifestyle dining groups, with many international awards and accolades for its concept, food, service and ambience. It is also renowned for its creative renewal of hackneyed land and buildings, as well as revolutionising the F&B and wedding businesses through its various concept brands: 1-Host, 1-Altitude, 1-Altimate, Stellar and more.


With his concept of r-Entrepreneurship and c-Leadership firmly in place, Ong continues to run the 1-Group, which in turn, continues to evolve in Singapore’s dynamic business landscape. When he manages to take time off work, he is spending quality time with his wife Wendy and their son Jerome.

Andy Yang's Art Exhibition: 

Imaginary Excursions: I Think I Am On A Field Trip | Andy Yang

Please refer to Facebook link for the timings and schedule, event is till 7 Nov 2019:


NPE Art Residency​ is pleased to invite you to Andy Yang’s solo exhibition, Imaginary Excursions: I Think I Am On A Field Trip!

3 decades after Professor Anne Sheppard shared that “enriching our aesthetic experience goes together with developing our powers of imagination,” the role of the artist evolved from being a technical genius to a visionary who manipulates time and space to connect us with the intangible.

As a parent, Andy Yang’s responsibilities have often rendered him ineligible for spontaneous hiatus to faraway lands where one goes into a new environment of wonder. Amidst these conditions of production, the expressionist painter revels in introspection where his mind massages his consciousness into a state of wander. Getting lost in books rich in culture, music that is ingrained in every nerve of his impetus to paint, and a new residency that grants a new found abode, Yang creates his own field trips. He makes drawings and sketches of scenery while traveling in them. Within the complexed layers of imagination, Yang detoured (created) into new dimensions of excursions - hideaways and sanctuaries where he takes a breather for a short moment.

Imaginary Excursions invites you to join Yang in his expedition into the wilderness. Within the collective of paintings as installation, find your safe space and listen to the heartbeat of your own fantasy.

Address: NPE Gallery (Level 2), 39 - 41 Kallang Place, Singapore 339169

Andy Yang - Olive

You can purchase his collections here:

Andy Yang (b. 1973, Malaysia) is a visual artist based in Singapore.

Andy received his fine art education from the renowned Malaysian Institute of Art in Kuala Lumpur, and graduated in 1994. Thereafter, Andy enjoyed a successful career as designer. In the mid 2000s, a trip abroad took him vis-à-vis artworks by artists such as Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso. The profound impression left on him by these experiences led him to broaden the horizons of his creativity and to explore visual artistic languages. Since then Andy has been participating in numerous group and solo exhibitions, including Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? at The Substation Gallery (2010), Emotions at Instinc Gallery (2011), Abstract innovations at One East Asia Gallery (2013), Existential Passages at K+ Scott’s Square (2016), and The Many Glimpses of Drama at Art Forum Gallery (2017).

Early on, Andy became fascinated by the abstract form, and by the flamboyancy of the colour gold. It was as if the power of the equatorial sun had landed and scattered on his canvases bringing to life the other colours, as in Flashbacks (2011).

Furthermore, Andy considered the abstract more suitable to respond to his longstanding passion for music. The exploration into the myriads of possibilities between visual art and music led him to the creation of works under musical stimuli, and also in collaboration with, amongst others, local indie band The Observatory. In Anitya 1 (2011) the artist exposes the process of his art making in full cycle, from creation to destruction, and provides the compelling visual focal point to the music played live by The Observatory, at the Earl Lu Gallery of the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore. And again, in the collaborative Spooky Action (at a Distance) presented for ArtScience Late in 2015 at the ArtScience Museum Singapore, Andy’s music and installation converge and blend in the impromptu performance by Strangeweather Movement Group.

Another distinctive character of the artist’s art making process is the way he applies the carefully selected colours. Andy does not proceed deliberately and in full control. Instead, he uses air blown from various implements to allow the colours to be dispersed in a way that combines harmoniously the antithetical forces of control and fortuity: space, materials, implements become co-creators alongside the artist, as in Breaking Barriers Of The Unknown (2014).

In recent years, Andy, grown confident in his familiar approach, and in unconscious pursuit of fresher challenges, has begun exploring a new direction: his field of vision embraces a wider and more balanced perspective. In his artwork for Chok Kerong’s album Tales They Told Me (2017), Andy uses ink and acrylics on paper: emptiness and silence play as much a part as the asemic writing, notes and pentagram’s lines pirouetting and swaying in the energetic composition. In Just Another Evening (2017), the indelible memory of a sunset is distilled, decomposed in its nuanced and essential elements, and conveyed on paper with a composed, measured, and confident maturity.

"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colours, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential." Wassily Kandinsky
