Personalities/Organisations in NORA
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. He has also extended his oeuvre to include both performance and installation art. Teo’s earliest works of the 1960s and 1970s had portrayed art as a form of a social statement. His most important contributions also lie in the area of art education and his advisory role to various art institutions and national committees. In his 70s, Teo converted part of his home on Marshall Road to Muse House, an exhibition space where his collection and the works of other artists are showcased for free.
