Mr Koh Tin Kok was a successful entrepreneur in Singapore who founded Tai Wee Company Private Limited, a food trading and investment company. He built valued business relationships, especially in China, where lifelong friendships with famed artists like Huang Zhou were forged. In 1986, he invited Huang Zhou to Singapore and sponsored his art exhibition there, also hosting Huang Zhou at his residence. Huang Zhou was inspired to paint at his home and gifted Mr Koh and his family artworks in return.
