Biography Khaw Sia
Khaw Sia was born in 1913.
Khaw Sia was perhaps the most flamboyant of the pioneer artists, accessorized in scarf, bow tie, smoking pipe et al. He had his early art tutelage at Sin Hwa Academy in Shanghai, graduating in 1932. In 1933, he took informal private classes under the great British watercolor painter Sir Russell Flint in London.
He migrated from China to settle in Penang in 1937 and held his first solo there in 1955. His watercolors were already of such impeccable quality that they were accepted by the prestigious Le Salon Paris in 1956, the 14th Summer Salon at Royal Institute Galleries in London in 1957, and the 25th National Society Exhibition in London in 1958.
