The Kampung Scene does justice to Keng Seng Choo’s reputation as an artist whose artistic prowess can be found with his ingenious layering of dark and light yellows. Viewers can appreciate the artist’s eye for detail and his perspective of the kampung life which offers serenity and peace as symbolised by the placement of the dove in the artwork.

Born in Kedah in 1945, Keng Seng Choo was educated at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore. He participated various art exhibitions in Malaysia and Singapore and was also the recipient for the silver medal at The New York International Art Show and the first prize at Pastel in Malaysia competition in 1988.
