Ong Kim Seng Biography

Moments of Light: Selected Paintings & Original Prints by Ong Kim Seng is an exhibition showcasing a series of works done in collaboration with the STPI workshop alongside a collection of original watercolours representing various periods of the artist’s career. Against this historical backdrop, Ong’s print works are a clear demonstration of further artistic development as he explores various printing techniques in creation of a delightful suite of lithographs, monotypes and other works on paper. In the artist’s own words, “Light is no longer ‘light’ as commonly depicted in watercolours, but a spectacular range of illumination, from deep nocturnal episodes to the wonderful, subtle light variations at dawn, dusk or during a tropical storm.”
