Let’s talk about me Ching Teoh, Most of my friends call me Ching. I’m born and raised in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia 1971. Moved to Australia in 2011. And now settling down on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, enjoying the sunshine and beaches throughout the year!
A little about my background. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Operations Research. But after less than 10 years in the industry, I had pivoted to art. Since young, I love patterns and forms of nature. When I look at a leaf, I see the patterns veins on the leaf. There are so many beautiful graphical patterns surrounding us.
Being a self-taught painter, I explore different methods and mediums. Slowly, I found my path; textured acrylic painting. Georgetown, Penang, where I grew up, is one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Where multi-cultural communities create vibrant colours in architecture, food, music and art. This has very much influenced my artworks. After moving to Australia, the new stage of life added new colours to my artworks.
I painted for companies, hotels and private art collectors. And have shipped my artworks to the US, UK, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia.
