KOH TENG HUAT
The Artist of Palette Knife
Koh is a self-taught artist who painted out his very own style of palette knife paintings. He uses his palette knives and paint brushes, painted out the scene that he has seen onto the canvas. His bold and expressive personality as well as his exuberance in art is uninhibitedly demonstrated through each of his art strokes. Throughout the years since he started to paint, he has produced a series of art pieces that mostly captured scenes at Balik Pulau and George Town, Penang. Other than that, he also travelled to other places within or out of Malaysia to capture the interesting places, objects, peoples or activities onto his canvas.
Koh Teng Huat's endless devotion in promoting the unspoiled fishing village town of Balik Pulau through art, culture and heritage has touched many local peoples’ heart in Penang, particularly in Balik Pulau.
