Khoo Sui Hoe
Khoo Sui Hoe (1939) is an American-based artist born to a fine tailor and homemaker in Kedah, Malaysia. His childhood aspirations of being a journalist led to his ventures outside of Malaysia, and across the border into Singapore, where he received his initial formal art education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1959 as apprentice to renowned pioneer artists Georgette Chen, Cheong Soo Pieng and Lai Foong Moi. Furthering his studies in the Pratt Graphic Centre, New York, Khoo’s works are a harmonious fusion of Western influences and British Malaya (Singapore and Malaysia before independence) cultures. An avid traveller, Khoo had the opportunity to engage in intellectual discourse and exchanges with other artists and patrons, broadening his horizon as a documentary painter of communities. His artworks thus serve as documentation of his constantly evolving environment as he travels to other countries like Japan and Thailand.
