17th ANNUAL NATIONAL TEOCHEW ARTISTS’ EXHIBITION 2015
THE NGEE ANN ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2015 : Mr Teo Yew Yap

\r\n

Born in Singapore in 1960, of Teochew, Chaoyang ancestry.  Teo Yew Yap is a highly regarded local painter, calligrapher, seal-carver and educator.  Well-versed in the various aspects of traditional Chinese art, Teo was a self-taught artist and held his first solo calligraphy and painting exhibition at Nanyang Junior College’s art studio during his school year.   At the age of 20, he came under the tutelage of famous local artist, the late Shi Xiang Tuo, well known for his unique style of seal-script calligraphy.

\r\n

Teo is fluent in the five scripts of Chinese calligraphy, particularly the traditional seal-script style for stone and seal-carving.  His strong and powerful brushstrokes reflect a unity of brush, ink and artist conception, as demonstrated as well, in his paintings.  With the encouragement of his mentor, Teo developed his own artistic sense and style, and became known for his signature bamboo paintings, for which he was awarded the “Dr Tan Tze Chor Young Artist Award” at the age of 26.  Teo is also known for his traditional seal-script style of seal-carving.

\r\n

Teo started teaching calligraphy and painting in his early 20s. Today, Teo is a full-time Chinese calligraphy and painting instructor at Chung Cheng High School, in which he since 1998.
