In conjunction with the Year of the Rooster, Townhouse Gallery has invited 8 of the leading contemporary artists in Malaysia to give their own individual interpretations of the Rooster.
The artists who’s works can be seen at this show are Ahmad Fuad Osman, Ahmad Shukri Mohamed, Bayu Utomo Radjikin, Hamir Soib, Masnor Ramli, (who make up the progressive MataHati art group, and who coincidentally are all born in the year of the Rooster),and Ng Kim Peow, Choy Chun Wei and Yau Bee Ling.
Ng Kim Peow is an artist and a printmaker who returned from London recently, and is a Master’s graduate from the prestigious London Guildhall University.
Choy Chun Wei who is a graduate of London’s Central Saint Martin’s School, received an Honourable Mention at the Phillip Morris Art Awards in 2003, and has with his wife, the renown artist Yau Bee Ling, been awarded the sought after Rimbun Dahan Residency this year.
It is certainly inspiring and interesting to see how the same theme is examined and executed by the various artists using different techniques, mediums and styles.
