Teo Chee Kia


My inspirations for painting are not complicated, nor hard to understand, I just enjoy painting for its ability to depict themes and subjects , ideas and opinions in my own way. I like to use the human figure in simple compositions to achieve this. Growing up in a constantly developing city there is much to learn and appreciate about its inhabitants, the wit and cunning grit of city dwellers, for instance. As such, I aim to capture my subjects' physical likenesses, and to utilize lighting and contrast effects as best as I can to flesh out its character. Primarily, I work in oils and draw my influences in painting from academic paintings and drawings. Such works require effort and immense skill, and they motivate me on my pursuit of excellence.
