The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Hafiz Osman: painter, sculptor, installation artist

Hafiz Osman is my brother-in-law and uncle to Ainan Celeste Cawley, the scientific child prodigy.
(To read about Ainan, the child prodigy, go to: ) Like my wife, Syahidah, he is an artist, though two very different artists it is hard to imagine. Hafiz Osman is concerned with colour and the abstract, my wife is concerned with line. Thus their works betray no relationship: one would never guess that they were brother and sister, other than the fact that both were artists.

Here are a selection of Hafiz Osman's installations, interior designs, paintings, sculptures and designed objects. Unlike most artists in Singapore, Hafiz actually makes a living at his work, needing no other job to support him. He has found a niche in the homes of the wealthy, and the entertainment establishments of Singapore, fashioning their environment with his usually vibrantly coloured artworks.

Hafiz Osman is a trained artist, having graduated from the Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts, Singapore, with a degree in Fine Arts. His work was shown at the Singapore Art Show 2005 and he has been the Artist-in-Residence, at the Hotel Galleria, Singapore.

These paintings, sculptures and installations are copyright Hafiz Osman. If you want the work, commission him, don't copy him.
