Wong Perng Fey’s (b. 1974, Kuala Lumpur) chosen subject is the Malaysian landscape. The process of his painting forms an emotional bridge between man and his surroundings, exploring questions of belonging, memory, inhabitation, change and permanence. At times exuberant and energetic, sometimes melancholy and calm, his works reflect a range of complex textures as varied as those found in the lived environment. He has exhibited several remarkably sensitive bodies of work, and continues to probe the language of painting to find new powerful interpretations of his subject. Graduating from the Malaysian Institute of Art in 1998 on scholarship, this young artist has so far begun to make his mark in the Malaysian context, and his works have been collected by Malaysia’s National Art Gallery and Galeri Petronas.
