Teng Nee-Cheong studied at the
Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore. He is inspired by the secessionist
paintings of Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862-1918). Teng's works are bold in color
and composition but have gentle, lyrical themes. He creates endless combinations
with a few motifs, especially flowers, textile patterns, and unique positions of
figures. He has a strong sense of design and very unique use color. Awards:
