Paul Koh, Singapore Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Over the years, Paul Koh has created a unique body of captivating and vibrant cat-inspired art that has been extremely well-received and sought after. Quirky, amusing and karmic, Paul's paintings unveil an “in-between” world where innocence and mischief go hand in hand. In each of his paintings, the cats (based on his real-life pets, Halo and Angel) is the artist’s gateway to a new space, a wonderland where emotions are innocent enough to run free, and dreams more than just make-believe.
