Wong-Keen-Portrait

Wong Keen

Most famed for his enigmatic executions of lotuses, nudes and landscapes, US-based artist Wong Keen’s oeuvre has been lauded as an embodiment of cross-cultural confluences, inspired by the elegance and expressiveness of Chinese ink painting and calligraphy, as well as his fascination with the Abstract Expressionist style.

His works are collected by the Singapore Art Museum, established art collectors and various organisations including Resort World Sentosa and The Fullerton Hotel.
