Jayson Yeoh Choon Seng, MOWS

Born in 1963 in the Malaysian state of Kedah, Jayson Yeoh is a self-taught watercolor artist. His passion and love for art started at young age. His artistic and self-exploration journey was bittersweet and full of ups and downs. However, his persistency and perseverance brought him to what and who he is currently.

Reminiscing the past, he was once in a dilemma of choosing his own life career – to be an art educator or an artist. After due diligence and consideration, he decided to choose the former due to life’s demands and expectations.

Therefore, YS Art Centre was formally established by him in 1991. Being in the industry for two decades, he had received the Outstanding Teacher Award from the Education Bureau of Shanghai , Hangzhou and Beijing, China and many other institutions for his excellence in teaching art.

Although he had been active in the art education industry for many years, his enthusiasm and passion for artistic endeavours were still burning in his heart. In recent years, he gradually eased himself from the hectic schedule of teaching and took time out to paint or do outdoor landscaping and sharpen his skills. Shifting from being an educator to an artist, he still felt that being an artist or painter is still his forte. Besides that, he also enjoys travelling and painting as such activities allow him to understand better the culture and customs of the locals.

His artworks have been selected for numerous exhibitions and competitions in both local and international juried exhibitions. In 1994, he won the Honorable Mention Award in the National Youth Open Watercolour Competition organised by the Malaysia Teo Chew Association. In 2006, his work was selected for the National ‘Enchanting Colourful’ Watercolor Open. His artwork ‘Serenity’ won him the Second Place Founders Award in the 2013 International Watermedia ‘Legacy’ Exhibition in The Pikes Peak Watercolor Society, USA. Among his best achievements include ‘The Wittnauer Watch Award’ -87th Annual Open Juried Exhibition by The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor 2012 and the ‘Award of Distinction’ by the Missouri International Annual Open Juried Exhibition 2013.

In 2014, another of his artworks won the Artist Merit Award at the International Annual Open Exhibition by the Missouri Watercolor Society, USA and he has recently been awarded with the Signature Status by the MOWS.

He is currently a member of the Contemporary Malaysian Watercolorists Association (CMWA) , Singapore Watercolour Society (SWS) and the Penang Watercolour Society (PWCS).

Jayson Yeoh has actively participated in numerous exhibitions all over the world. He was one of invited guest of honor in ‘The 3rd GNWP China , Shanghai Exhibition’ and ‘The World Watermedia Exposition’ ,Thailand 2014.

His works are in the collections of Citi Bank Kuala Lumpur, Mr. Roland Folger (President & CEO of Mercedes- Benz) and Mr.Lim It Leang (The Art Brush Studio-Langkawi).

Despite his list of achievements, he never rests on his laurels and constantly strives to pursue greater heights and achievements in the art of watercolour painting.

论写实 Realistic Art ~~ 黄运南 Ng Woon Lam nws aws

Posted by ngwoonlam on June 8, 2013

One Arbitrary Write-up that will be published in my new art catalog: 论写实 (Realistic Art), a short paragraph here…


My concept in realistic art allows me to understand why the delusive likeness is above shape and color duplication. Observation is a passive process while composition is an active process. Therefore, composition process creates a large impact visually. From selective memory and selective decision in composition, an artist creates visual resonance to viewers. Great sense of reality is imposed to viewers through this delusive process, which is meant by spiritual likeness in Chinese art. For example, I know a durian smells good. When I see an image of a durian, my mind starts to relate it to good smell. Its good smell is directly linked with the texture and color of its fruits. If I am able to depict these two qualities, viewers will delusively translate them to its smell. If an artist just duplicates an observation of a durian, the less important parts are equally represented which in turn will reduce the strength of the former two factors. Hence realism here is a result of an essential summary by an artist to allow visual delusion for ‘likeness’.
