The quiet radiance and glow to Keng Seng Choo’s works is the reason why his paintings are striking and stunning. The contrast of light and dark colours, as well as texture boasts a smooth finish – a show of Keng Seng Choo’s flair for shading and eye for intricate details. Born in Kedah in 1945, Keng Seng Choo was educated at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore. He participated in various art exhibitions in Malaysia and Singapore and was also the recipient of the silver medal at The New York International Art Show and the first prize at Pastel in Malaysia competition in 1988.
