About the Artist
Born in 1946, Chng Seok Tin contributed largely to the local arts scene by teaching arts and language at various institutions. She taught at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and LASALLE College of the Arts before losing her eyesight in a tragic incident, which was the biggest turning point in her career and life.
With the support of her loved ones, Chng gained the courage and motivation to continue her career in teaching and arts and has become one of Singapore’s most celebrated female artist. Winner of the Singapore Cultural Medallion in 2005, Chng has held over 26 solo and 138 group exhibitions. She was named Woman of the Year 2001 by Her World magazine.
“What is important to me is not how to create a picture, but how to live.” – Chng Seok Tin
