Donna Ong was also recognized for her artistic achievements by the Singapore Government and she also won the people’s choice award for the president’s young talent competition.

The type of concept she goes for is realistic art works that are visually arresting and provoking. Her aim when displaying her art work is to let the audience escape into it and encounter different ideas, emotions and experience. She wants to seduce her audience with beauty, wonder and awe so they would be more interested in her instillations and will be motivated to discover the more subtle ideas and thoughts she has hidden behind the seductive façade.
