Kok Tuck Chong is a quadriplegic, which literally means paralysis of 4 limbs. He got his injury in 1990 when he was a sailor. After a night out drinking with his friends, he fell off the escalator at one of the MRT station. That left him confined to the wheelchair permanently. Even though he could use his shoulder, arm and wrist, he had very limited control over his fingers. He could feed himself but needs his wife to bathe him and clear the bowel. Kok Tuck Chong had always liked to paint, but it was not easy with the brushes held in the mouth. However, with perseverance and determination, he was able to overcome all the difficulties. He has participated in various exhibitions, some with the cooperation from Very Special Art Singapore.
