Abstract:
Teo Eng Seng (张永生) (b. 14 December 1938, Singapore–) was a recipient of the Cultural Medallion in 1986 for his contributions to visual arts. In 1960, The Singapore Free Press described Teo as “a youth who holds the record of being the first schoolboy in Singapore to hold a one-man art exhibition”. His invention of the paperdyesculp as a medium ranks as one of the most significant achievements of second-generation artists in Singapore.
