It is Tan Wei Kheng’s destiny to draw attention to the beauty and specialty of the people of his country. For him there exists only one medium to do it: the portrait. As self taught artist without any formal training- Tan Wei Kheng studied art only by reading art books-he achieved a level of artistry, comparable with the technique of the old masters that filled people with awe. It is not only the perfectionism of his old master technique connected with the high realistic effect of his paintings which affects the viewer. It is furthermore the expression of the portrayed people which touch us. Tan Wei Kheng is able to catch the character and the soul of the people in his paintings and to bring them to life. A collector of his works said: “You want to walk towards the painting and touch the people, they seem so real."
