About Kok Yew Puah

Kok Yew Puah (1947-1999) first impressed the local scene when he returned from his studies in Melbourne as a bold hard-edge abstract printmaker in the early 1970s, one among many artists trying to find a direction in the fray of competing isms, ideologies, and social politics of the time. After leaving art for several years to run a family business, he forged a new practice as a figurative painter, producing some of the most honest, human, and subjective representations of the country’s visual landscape of the late 1980s and 90s. He passed away at the age of 51.

The components of visual arts consist of painting and craft (molding plasticine clay, collage and montage) while In the performing arts the major components are of music, dance/movements and role play (drama therapy).
The arts for special needs children are applied for its therapeutic effects. While it may not be able to correct the disabilities, especially in children with cerebral palsy and autism, it could ameliorate them to create a feel-good felling and improve their quality of life and hopefully tap the internal healing energy to redress certain genetic imbalance.

Cultural diplomacy has been around for a long time; it has been used to introduce cultures and heritage to countries and their people as a way to create relationships. It is also a tool to expose a country’s arts and culture to other countries as a cultural exchange.
