ARTS & CULTURE PERSONALITIES

Another group of VIPs that Singapore stamps remind us of are the pioneers of the arts and culture scene. In 1979 the Cultural Medallion award was established to honour persons who have made major contributions to the arts and culture (Art, Dance, Literature, Music, Photography and Theatre) in Singapore. From 1979 to 2005, there were 86 Cultural Medallion winners.

Among the arts and culture personalities featured on stamps in this section is a non-Singaporean, a world-famous writer of children’s stories, who was born in Denmark 200 years ago. Can you guess his name?
