Acclaimed watercolourist Ong Kim Seng (b. 1945, Singapore) is described as the ultimate ‘maestro of light.’ His signature style is marked by a consummate handling of light and shadows in his pieces, sensitive composition, and meticulous detail. As an avid traveller to natural landscapes around the world, Ong is known for his sensitive grasp of the intricacies of each culture and present them vividly in his watercolour paintings.
Currently the honorary President of the Singapore Watercolour Society, following a long term as its President (1991-2001), Ong continues to actively promote watercolour with organisations and bodies around the world. The artist is also one of the founding members of the International Masters of Watercolor Association based in Shanghai.
