Exhibition by Kok Leong (Singapore)
(Opening: 24th of February 2008)
Kok Leong, is a self-taught painter who paints by gripping a brush between his teeth. At 18, a
close-to-fatal leg-locking somersault at a Lion Dance rehearsal paralysed him almost completely from
the neck down. After his accident, he began taking painting lessons from a Chinese Ink Master and is a
committed artist who works with oils, watercolours and mixed media. Kok Leong will conduct presentations
of his extraordinary painting technique at various venues throughout the Spotlight Festival week.
