Chuah Thean Teng was a Malaysian artists and is considered to be the 'Father of Batik Painting'
Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique.
Batik is made either by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting, or by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap . The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired.
A tradition of making batik is found in various countries, including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Nigeria; the batik of Indonesia, however, is the best-known. Indonesian batik made in the island of Java has a long history of acculturation, with diverse patterns influenced by a variety of cultures, and is the most developed in terms of pattern, technique, and the quality of workmanship.
The word batik is Javanese in origin. It may either come from the Javanese word amba ('to write') and titik ('dot'). The word is first recorded in English in the Encyclopædia Britannica of 1880, in which it is spelled battik.
