Lee Kian Choong

KC, as we fondly call him, is Malaysian, 55, with the wide horizons of a much travelled man. His studio is in Singapore, where he lives with his family. Already an established and recognized portrait photographer, his visual art works have been commissioned by specialist private collectors across Asia.

Working and studying hard in the UK, he gained degrees in computer science, contemporary art practices and became a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. Rare indeed, for an accomplished artist to be so professionally qualified in his chosen field. This diverse background makes for intrigue and wonder in the beholder.

Today, KC uses the traditional mediums of brush, ink and colours on rice paper to create contemporary works with modern abstract themes and innovative new painting techniques.

In the words of KC Lee, “Art Is The Embodiment of Universality". This simple statement goes a long way to explain his creative philosophy.

With his experience and diverse background he is in a strong position to create his own globalized art style which represent a bridge between less prominent boundaries and cultures. Defined as contemporary with eastern spirituality and western aesthetics, his style is both pleasing to the eye and teasing to the mind.
