About Teng Ko Weng

Artistic creation is an expression of life within oneself –
it describes and praises the amazing and great love of God who created the universe and all the living things.

– Teng-Ko Weng

Teng-Ko Weng was born in 1960 in Taipei, Taiwan. He was raised in an orphanage. To pay for his tuition, Weng worked part time as a street artist and art teacher. His unique experiences on the street exposed him to a variety of art styles and mediums. Weng studied at the Fu Sing Trade School in Taiwan, where he graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts in 1979. When he was 20, Weng fell ill to meningitis, and lost a part of his hearing. Weng owes his miraculous recovery to his Christian faith. Weng’s incredible life experiences and extensive learning process has laid a profound foundation for his art career.

Weng’s work has been met with critical acclaim and has received several first prize awards. He had published an album of his paintings, an autobiography, and a calendar with his oil paintings. In 1993, he earned a religious artistic award from a Christian art organization in the United States. His works are frequently on display in art galleries and museums. Internationally and locally, he has been in many exhibitions, including The Second Annual Christian Arts Festival in Los Angeles. He has also hosted many solo exhibitions at many places, some of which include: the Pang Pik Gallery (Taiwan), Hao Lai Art Center (Taiwan), Shadbolt Center (Canada), Langley Centennial Museum (Canada), and the Deer Lake Gallery (Canada).

In 1995, Weng emigrated from Taiwan to Canada and now lives in Burnaby with his wife and three children. He is a senior member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and the Burnaby Art Council. He is the founder of the Teng-Ko Weng Art Studio.
