Born in 1941 in Singapore, Dr Jolly Koh is possibly one of the most illustrious artists in Malaysia. He is widely considered as one of the prime movers of the local art scene where he brings with him a vast range of experience he gained through living in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and many other countries. Jolly Koh’s paintings have a strong and resolute quality that reflects his personality. His works also present a lyrical and romantic quality, which surely showcases his private persona. The artist’s creations, awash with the quietude of a meditative soul, stand as a testament to his profound connection to the natural world and his ability to translate its essence onto canvas with unerring finesse.
