Ong Kim Seng was born in Singapore in 1945 and has been a full-time artist since 1985. Among the awards that he has won from the American Watercolour Society are the Paul B. Remmy Memorial Award in 1983, the Luc B. Moore Award in 1988 and the Clara Stroud Memorial Award 1989, just to name a few. Using the medium of ink and colour on paper, Ong Kim Seng beautifully captures a scenery in his Nepal Series. Having splendid balance between subject and space, this piece really is truly stunning and one-of-a-kind.
