Born in Selangor in 1936, Tew Nai Tong studied art at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore (NAFA), graduating in 1958 before furthering his studies at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris. He was also the co-founder of the Malaysian Watercolour Society and the Contemporary Malaysian Watercolourist Association. Illustrated here is a combination of Tew Nai Tong’s hallmark in his artworks. He has a unique way of perceiving life, enriching the visualisation of what he sees through his vibrant paintings. The coarseness of acrylic colour and texture in this particular painting captures a scenic view that’s peaceful and simply beautiful.
