Siapa Seah Kim Joo?
"Seah Kim Joo was born in 1939 in Singapore and raised in Terengganu where he was exposed to traditional batik making processes. He entered Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1959. In 1965, he returned to Terengganu and travelled the Malaysian east coast to consolidate his learning in the technique of batik.
Seah Kim Joo drew his inspiration from the traditional medium of batik print. In the 1950s, when the Penang-based artist Chuah Thean Teng experimented with representational painting using the batik medium, he drew a following since the manifestation of contemporary themes in a traditional medium was regarded as a direct expression of Nanyang regionalism.
Seah Kim Joo's artworks had been auctioned at Christie's and Sotheby's."
