Artist / Art Teaching Team

Goh Keat Leong

Nagomi Artist / Teacher

Goh Keat Leong grew up in a humble fishing village with an exceptional interest in drawing. As art lessons were considered an extravagance, he taught himself sketching and illustration.

In 2017, he chanced upon Pastel Nagomi Art. This simple form of art rekindled his long-lost desire in art creation, and he started his journey as a Pastel Nagomi Art instructor. Keat Leong believes that art is not just about drawing skills and creativity. Art can be a simple form of therapy that brings balance to people’s emotional harmony, and it should always be a part of our lives.

In 2019, he founded Zundeng Art based on his alias name, Zundeng. Zundeng Art is known for the willingness to share valuable and quality content openly and the stencils that he designed and created are widely used in many countries!
